Hello all. I'm new to byc and don't know how to link my intro thread explaining my situation with my new chicks. Basically, while watching someone's farm, I rescued an injured 1-2 week old that had been picked on and had a big wound. Kept it clean and kept chicky warm. They offered me the other 3 and we waited until he healed. They brought the other 3 a couple days ago and everybody is getting along great. The other 3 have been outside with Mom this whole time and I thought I saw a smidge of red in a poop that night after he dropped them off. It had been stepped on so it was hard to tell. I had my boyfriend double check and make sure I wasn't reading too much into it and he said no it does look like it could definitely have been blood. And all the threads on here warn of waiting to treat for cocci, so I startedor right away. Have not seen a hint of red except for what I think is the red that occurs when they shed their intestinal lining, is that accurate? I stopped vitamins & electrolytes & vetrx in the water for treatment. We are on day 3 of corid 20% powder mixed at 1/2 tsp per gallon and the biggest chick is looking a little sleepy today. Still eating, but not as often as the others. (Mind you they're in my bathroom for temp control reasons, so I only see them in the windows of time that I'm in there.) Very excited about mealworms as always. I'm worried I didn't need to do the corid and I should stop and put back on vitamins, etc, but it's only day 3. I can't decide if I should keep going 2 more days bc the other 3 were outside so long & more exposed...or if I'm wasting time treating something they don't have when I should be boosting them with vitamins, etc. I know I tend to get antsy when I think something is wrong with one of my animals, so I need outside opinions please!! I have also considered that since they are used to being outside and it gets dark so early, that maybe I left the bathroom lights on too late yesterday & this particular chicky is legitimately tired. A little yawning, but not nonstop that I've noticed by any means.
