    I've already lost one chick, this morning. I don't know if these are normal poops or what I've read could be cocci poops? Here is a link to my original post, I don't know how to move it, but it has pictures. The chicks don't seem lethargic, but then again I'm new to chicks and all they do is eat, poop, and sleep ... A lot. So I'm not sure what I'm looking for? Also, tomorrows Easter and I'm afraid all the feed stores will be closed to medicine. Ay home remedies for 6day old chicks if it is cocci?

    Do a search above for cocci and treatment. I haven't dealt with it so I do not know. Good luck!

    IF it's cocci, sprinkle the powder from powdered milk into their feed til you can get Corid.

    Thank you again!

    I checked on them this morning, and they look okay? Two were eating and drinking, the rest were sleeping. The hopped right up when I startled them. I'm going to do the milk. Thanks again! :D
