    How many more chickens do you have?
    If they all have it you don’t need to quarantine it’s better for them to be together
    did you give corid in water or did you do the drench?
    Are you sure it’s cocci?
    Do they have blood in their droppings?

    Also keep them inside in a warm place inside like a bathroom
    Are they hunched up with their feathers out?
    Are they moving around a lot or just kind of standing still?

    Can you describe what the symptoms were and how the chickens looked. Coccidiosis is more often a disease of younger birds, but it is still possible for older birds to get it. They tend to look weak and hunched, do not eat, and have runny poops, sometimes with blood.

    What dosage of Corid were you using? Were they drinking enough of it? If you lose another bird, or if you still have the body, you should send the body in to your state vet for a necropsy, just in case something else is happening. Refrigerate, but don’t freeze the body and take it in or ship it overnight right away.

    If you are having a coccidiosis outbreak, it could be a bad strain that might require sulfa antibiotics. You would need to get that from a vet. Be sure and clean up all of the droppings, and put down fresh bedding in your coop, keeping it dry. Sorry for your loss.

    I would get a necropsy because you don’t want to bring baby chicks in with something bad going on. Be sure and put the new chicks in clean bedding that has not been used before, and clean your brooder with disinfectant.
