    Coccidiosis is a chick killer, are there buts swollen, pasty butt? Do they just stand there for a day before death, won't lay down and rest? Corid is a coccidiostat. Corid wont hurt them even it isn't coccidiosis.
    Welcome

    Some one else said about that on the other post I put on and posted a link with symptoms but they don't match the one that died and the one that is looking ropey are eating and drinking the one had a dose of the runs slightly but not completely watery and no blood it will snuggle down with the others before I isolated it but they are a bit quieter than the others and seem to be sleeping more
