I'm in southern New Mexico, and our temps have been around 100 for the last few days. I had 6 speckled sussex chicks and 5 oegb chicks, between 8 and 13 weeks old, in a cage inside the coop. When i got home yesterday evening, i had two dead chicks and this morning 2 more ill. All are off their feed, piling in the coop, and not as active as normal. The two sick ones were puffed, droopy, and lethargic. I moved them into the house to cool them down, gave them water, and this evening when I got home they were dead as well. I have been reading about coccidiosis and heat stroke, and they have very similar symptoms. Other than taking a stool sample to the vet, is there a way to tell the difference? I don't want to medicate unnecessarily, but i can't lose more chicks . Their poop is reddish, like it may have blood in it. I made some homemade electrolyte solution and added acv to it, put a gallon jug of ice in the coop today, and none of the chicks left are any worse this evening, but not much better either. We also installed a fan tonight to cool them off. My son got married this weekend so I've missed work this past week, i can't miss more work this week, and the vet is 30 miles away. Help!
