I bought some cochin and buff peeps from the same source 2 weeks ago, and then some more a week later. They started dying one or two at a time right after purchasing them. They are on medicated feed, grit for peeps, under a heat lamp, and now getting a liquid product, sulfa something for cochsidia(sp) None of this is helping. The peeps will seem perfectly fine, until they're not. They will seem to get sleepy, stop eating and then be dead within a day. I have lost at least 15 of them. I spoke with a friend who got some peeps from the same woman and she is having the same problem. The woman I bought them from claims not to be having any problems with her peeps. Somehow I doubt this. I have other peeps (from another source) in a seperate brooder, but in the same room and none of them have gotten sick. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be and how to treat it?
