    was wondering if you could get the vaccine anywhere? Just hatched out some eggs and want to make sure that they dont contract this disease. I do keep there pin cleaned, fresh water EVERYDAY. Is there anything else? Or something you can give so they dont get this?

    It is my understanding that there is no danger from Coccidiosis until you put the chicks on dirt. I feed medicated starter - turkey - to mine and this takes care of it. If you see bloody stools, then you can medicate their drinking water and it takes care of it. But, I prefer the medicated feed to start them on. [​IMG]

    medicated feed is the right thing to prevent coccidiosis.
