    I hatched a white silkie March 2nd & I've left him/she in the incubator bc everytime I move him/her to the brood he/she cries! I got home to check on him/her & he/she is poolping blood & orange looking stuff!?!

    Start the baby silkie on Corid right away. It can be found at your local feed store most likely. 1/8 tsp for 4 cups of water, 7 days. change out fresh each day. Look up coccidiosis. Hope the baby gets better fast!

    Good luck with your baby.
    When I had my first chicks last Spring I panicked when I saw something like blood in the poop. It turned out to be a seca discarge which I did not know anything about. The good thing is that your baby is by his/herself so you won't have contamination.
