    I definitely need help here.
    I have had a few babies died way too many. I didn't put them together with my new batch of babies. So I gave them this a few months ago.
    [​IMG]I didn't put together, thanks God . The thing is that in my coop I checked my flock and saw that a few of my adults had running nose. So I put them all in antibiotics. I had seen the little ones poop a little weird before but today I definitely see blood in the stool. They look healthy and happy. Is it the antibiotics that I have given them for two days or if not will the Antibiotics Help?

    Sorry to hear about the losses. Can you tell us what antibiotics you've given them, how long etc?

    If you are seeing blood in the stool of the young birds you need to treat them with Corid. I'm not clear from your post which bunch got the Corid before but again, if your seeing blood I'd treat asap. Make sure you treat for the full 5 days, make it up fresh every day.
