    Most of my chicks have loose poop. Is there something I can add to their water or food. They are on a 20% food. I have had to clean 4 or 5 butts so far this morning.

    Thanks

    This might have done better under emergencies/diseases/etc., with more info. Need to tell us whether the feed is medicated. Have you read up on cocciciomycosis (sp)? What do you mean by loose? Can you post a photo?

    Thanks. I did not know about the other group. I will put it there.

    No the food is not medicated. I will take a pic tomorrow.
