Hi, last year was my 1st time raising meat birds, I got 50 Cornish Cross chicks. They were free range from very early. I fermented their feed and gave them limited rations, unfortunately too limited and it stunted their growth. Other than being very hungry at feeding time, they were very happy and seemingly healthy chickens until all of a sudden half of them died to coccidiosis. It was a horrible experience to wonder how many would be dead this time, every time I went to check on them. I was able to save 25 of them once I figured out what was happening. I know that I did not keep their feeding dishes clean enough, but other than that, what can I do to try to keep that from happening again? I am undecided on whether I want to feed fermented feed again or just make sure they have apple cider vinegar in their water. Should I feed medicated feed since I know we have high amounts of coccidiosis around? Thank you for reading, everyone on this formum has been so helpful to me in this new endeavor.
