    Quote:Sulmet is a liquid medecine for my chickens. A lot on BYC told me that my chickens have cocci. I have lost a lot of my chickens over the last couple weeks because of cocci or whatever they have. That is why I am giving it to them.

    Not everybody told you they had cocci, but that's neither here nor there at this point in time. You need to either get one of your dead birds tested to see exactly what you're dealing with or find a vet who will look at one of the sick ones. Until you do that it does no good to give them medicene that might be doing more harm than good or even supposed to be used for whatever illness they've got.

    Quote:How much would it be for a necropsy? If it is a lot of money than that is out of the question.

    A couple days ago I emailed Gary Butcher at University of Florida about our problem and he said he would call me so we could find out what is wrong with my chickens. Btw Gary Butcher is a poultry vet at UF. I know it will help but I need all the help I can get.

    I really sorry to hear you lost more chickens Maxx. My sympathies.

    I would get testing and a necropsy done, if you can.

    Maxx, I just don't know, buddy. You need some real professional help with this one and looks like you may get it. I didn't think it sounded like Cocci, really, but as I told you, it's really hard to diagnose an illness on the web. I'd stop the Sulmet since it's not doing any good.
