Two of my chickens, Skye and Q, Have a horrible diarrhea problem. The diiarrhea gets stuck on their feathers. I was wondering if anyone might know how to cure this problem?

Thank you for your time

Eggnog1,

No expert here, but sounds like your babies might have cocci. Very common. Can be treated with Corrid. Should be available at the feed store. Also put a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in their water. If that is what they have, it can kill left untreated. Chickens immune systems will eventually deal with this protazoan but in young or weak chicks it can kill them before that happens. I would treat to get them healthy again more quickly. It is environmental, but once they recover will rarely be a problem unless you bring in young chicks.

Good Luck
Alice
