chicks dying help


May 2, 2015
Recently I've had a bunch of chicks getting sick. They are about a month old. They all seem fine at first then they get droopy and stop eating and drinking. They stop eating and drinking as soon as I noticed them droopy and barley moving. I've tried adding some water soluble antibiotics when the first one died but it hasn't helped and I loose about one a day. Does anyone know what it might be and how I can treat it? I'm posting a pic of the newest infected that I found an hour ago
I agree with sdm111--it sounds like coccidiosis. Corid (amprollium) which is a cattle medicine, is used to treat it. Dosage is 2 tsp of liquid Corid, or 1.5 tsp of powder Corid per gallon of water for 5-7 days. Treat all chicks. Afterward, give vitamins and probiotics for several days.
