I have a 2 week old baby chick that I think is suffering from coccidiosis. He is very lethargic, not eating or drinking much, falls asleep standing then topples almost to a laying position. He will walk with his wings out as if to balance himself. Sleeps almost all the time for the last 2 days. The other 5 chicks were trampling him so I have now moved him into another brooder. Just this morning I started to notice the bloody feces....but nothing until today. His poos were watery but no blood prior to this morning. I have corid 20% powder on hand that I just starting using, I have also put some into the healthy chicks water as they were exposed. My question is about the recipe for coccidiosis: if my chick is refusing food and water how do I get the medicine into him. I had noticed that he is considerably smaller than the others his same age. Would coccidiosis stunt his growth prior to showing symptoms? He has been symptomatic for 3 days counting today. I don't have a gallon waterer to place in the brooders, I only have the quart ones. So how much Corid 20% powder for 1 quart of water? This baby chick was outside briefly as he was almost hatched by a broody who gave up the day prior to hatcing. I place the egg into the incubator and he did hatch out normally. I then brought him outside to show the no longer broody Mother hen what she would of had. I place him on the ground in their run, he cheeped, she looked betweeen her legs and then just walked away, not interested in being a Mom! I guess that would have been about 12 days ago because he just just 2 days old when I did that. 2 minutes in the run is enough to get exposed I guess. Coccidia is the only illness that fits the description so I'm going with that..... I have pm'd this to a few "experts" with much more knowledge but have not gotten any responses yet so I'm going public with the problem.
