    I'm treating my younger chicks for cocci. I lost one, but the rest seem okay. No one is listless, no bloody poops, etc. Would putting them outside be okay or should I wait, and how long do I wait? I'm using sulmet because I couldn't find anything else.

    Coccidiosis. They apparently get it from the ground outside, so I'm not sure if exposing them to more of it would just set them back again at this point?
