    We have a brooder with 4 week old and 3 week old buff orps in it - we found one dead this morning, and another is hunkered down in the corner very weak with bloody stool. Is this cocci? Do I need to separate them immediately from the other chicks? What risk do the other chicks have of becoming sick as well? HELP!

    I would definitely separate any that are acting sick and medicate the whole brood.
