    Symptoms- bloody poo, ruffled feathers. she is not as active as the one weeker we have so i am a little lost. she has been getting corid since thursday. today makes day 5 (4-3-18) when is it okay to reunite them all together. we also got a light brahma chicken from the same lady.

    Now back to the other day. we took our kids to pick out some chicks some we bought from a hardware store(3) the other was a polish hen we got from a farm. it was so tiny and had poop all over its feet balls of mud around the toes and missing toenails. the feet were red. i couldnt leave it so we got it well big mistake on my part!!!! IT HAD COCCIDISOS!!! drainage from nose. we took him back and got the hamburg and light Brahma. well we saw red poop, so i separated them and now the three we originally bought together are together and the other two are living together. if they are pooping blood does that mean it is coccidisos too. just incase we are giving them corid, and we are doing medicated feed. the darn chicken makes me think he is dead every time i look in there hes always sleeping. anyways i am going to post pictures. does this look normal? is the picture of the poop- is that the linning of intestines ? i havent seen red poop in days! also they are having diarrhea . i dont know what else to do ??? i have given it corrid i have given it yogurt and egg ?? help meeeee please

    The hamburg chick looks very unwell. Can you get it drinking the medicated water by dipping it’s beak, pausing to let it swallow and repeat. Which type of Corid do you have—powder or liquid. How much are you adding to a gallon of water? Dosage is 1.5 tsp of powder or 2 tsp of liquid Corid per gallon of water for 7 days. What temperature is your brooder? She needs to be kept warm, at least 85 degrees F with a thermometer on the floor. She may eat some wet chicken feed made thin with some Corid water— just mix a small bit. I would not be surprised if she doesn’t make it, but I would keep trying to help her.

    If you can give the little hamburg 2 drops of the undiluted Corid twice a day, it may jump start the Corid. I would continue the Corid for a full 7 days, then reduce the dosage for another week. Good luck.

    If she will fight we will too!! the people at tractor supply told me to cull it because it wont make it. but here we are 5 days later and still alive. i paid 10 for each of the birds that came from the farm then 20 for the corid!!! so it better know it is one special chicken if it does make it !!! i now will only buy from npip breeders!! i have learned my lesson i just feel so bad for the little fella. she was so unsocial now she will come up to you if you give her a crumble of egg or mealworm.
    The other one in there what do i do about that? i saw red poop about a week ago and seperated those two from the other three and they have gotten 2 tsp of corid. could it be she isnt getting enough corid so i keep giving the corid to the light brahma ? do i keep giving it as a precautionary to the others that are in the other brooder (they are a week old and was with the two for about a day and a half.
