Ugh, I hate awkward situations like this. I purchased chicks from a fellow BYC member and once I got them home realized they have coccidiosis and also are infected with lice. This individual isn't a professional breeder but has plenty of experience with chickens (multiple breeds) and other poultry and has been breeding for several years. These chicks range in age from a week to a couple weeks and were all hatched in an incubator and kept in a brooder. I've had them a couple days now. They are being kept inside my house and haven't been exposed to anything. The container I have them set up in has never been used before. I don't even understand how they could have gotten lice? Were they housed in a dirty brooder? I drove some distance to pick these chicks up in person and met the breeder and everything. The breeder had to have known they had bloody stinky stools but said nothing. One chick has died already. I will be at the store tomorrow buying supplies to treat the rest and hope that they make it What do I say to this person, if anything? Do I ask for a refund? I did not drive all that way to buy sick chicks! The worst part is that I'm already attached to them and will be very sad if they don't make it. I've only been a member on here for a few months and sure would appreciate some advice. Thanks!
