Will the chic drama EVER end? I have (1) 9 week and (2) 2 1/2 week old cochins that we have worked very hard to take care of and so far they have been the picture of health. That being said, my husband of whom I love very much has NOT been involved in my new hobby at all and refused to believe that I have learned anything just by reading all I can on raising chicks. He thinks that since he grew up redneck, he has some ever lasting knowledge of farm life .....SOOO when he showed up with (3) fully feathered pullets on Sat, a prize for me I was very suprised and very nervous. I told him to please put them in a seperate spot when they got home & I would watch them since thier poop looked a little strange to me & he said it was just their feed. I get home that evening & I see them in the coop with my babies. He said nobody pecked at anybody so they should be fine..... Fast forward Sunday morning.... I find (1) of the new chicks DEAD & 1 looking not so far from it. It just sits there all puffed up with it's eyes closed and chirps all the time! The third chick looks pretty healthy but is constanly bothered by the sickly one that is always trying to get under her. I seperated them at that point & I noticed the new chicks poo looked like it had blood in it, but when I looked at the poo chart it was not as dramatic as the chart picture. It looked more like the last three with the intestinal lining. With just red spotches in it. http://www.chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0 What do I do now? How do I figure out what is wrong with them & with them being in there overnight, will my babies get what ever it is? Thank you for all your time! My store is out of Corrid till Thursday but they have Sulmet? Will that work??
