    And thanks. Those test results were a huge relief. I think I'll still only get vaccinated babies from now on. That mareks scare took ten years off my life lol

    i bet they were! i would of been the same way
    Thanks.



    I read up on cocci as I had no clue what it was. Now i know of another disease to be worried about, but know none of my birds have it. I have NEVER seen blood in the poop of any chickens I have owned. it sounds like a pretty terrible disease, sounds about as bad as the bubonic plaque was in humans! I am glad I read up on it.

    EmSteele~ I'm in the same boat. My Jubilee and Chocolate Bantam orpingtons are both 30 weeks old although the breeder didn't give me the exact day that each one hatched. I haven't noticed any signs that either might be laying soon. Out of my five hens, I my RIR and BR are the only ones laying because the others are molting. I guess I can't complain since I am still able to eat breakfast.
    Julie0477 posted: One of my many many MANY roosters. I think this guy is s polish cross frizzle. I'm basing that purely on the v-comb. He was showing some aggression to one of my silkies today. He might need a new home we shall see [​IMG]
    Julie 0477~ This rooster looks very indignant! Hilarious look! [​IMG]
    CCCHICKENS posted~ She did not actually die that is why I put "passed away". She had a torn tendon and a couple of toes that were out of place, not how she did it but it was obvious she was not going to get better. I found someone to do the deed for me.
    CCCHICKENS~ Sorry, that occurred me to later that evening after I posted. I'm glad you found someone to help. And sorry to hear about your latest loss! [​IMG]
    barb s~ Looks like you hit the jackpot! All of your chicks are adorable!
    MrTattoohead~ NIce eggs-- both "before" and "after."
    LeahsMom~ Mister and MissGray make a stunning couple.
    bradselig~ Nice pics as always. Looks like you have a busy weekend with all of those mouths to feed!

    yes, sounds like a very helpful (med or antibotic I dont rmemeber what I read). I am glad I have never had to deal with it. And am sorry for the people who have. I watched a very descriptive videoon youtube. It was no pleasant it showed how the chickens acted as it got increasingly worse. They chicken had died by day 6.

    I have a question. I have an old pen that has a rabbit in it. But I am going to take the rabbit out and then put some chickens in it. Do I need to get some type of cleaning spray to clean in there? Or will be okay if I just get as much as I can out with a shovel?

    I had babies get it this spring. It was bad I lost several. And they were so young id never even let them outside so i didnt think it could be cocci. Once I figured out what it was (either my brooder or the one at RK must have bern contimated with it) and started corid the ones left were all better within 24 hours. Now I know what to look for. Lots of learning for me this year.
