    I woke up this morning and looked in on the silkie's brooder, to find a bunch of blood! It's not like a few drops, but it's all over. The poop is like all red. I think it's from sully, but chatterbox tends to poke at it so she might have whatever it is too.

    The feed store is closed today, so I can't go there, but what do you think the chicks have? How can I treat it? Will they die? Please Help!

    Maybe Coccidiosis.

    I think it might be. Only Sullie had it this morning, and chatterbox seems to have it now. Their poop is practically pure blood, and a few poops might have something solid in them.
    Please help! Any house hold ingrediets that can cure this? How do I treat it? I can order something (I don't know what) online, but it takes at least a week to get here!

    Will they stay alive?

    It kills quickly. Can you get Corid tomorrow? There are threads with the dosage.
     

  5. Did you get the Corid yet and ACV wont do anything but prolong the life of your chicken a few days but it hill help .....

    Please update ......

    Okay, the silkies are eating, sullie isn't eating as much. It also looks like the chicks outside have it. But i'm not positive.

    I can get the Corid today but the chicks won't be able to have it until the end of the day.

    It's important to treat them all if they have all been in contact with the sick one . Just to cover the bases at minimum. Coccidiosis can breed in wet and dirty ground so making sure they have access to fresh ground/ renewing the pen floor and taking away pooped on bits is also important
