We just lost a baby that we got from a local farm and feed store (they got them in Wednesday from a hatchery, we picked her up Thursday, and she seemed weak all day yesterday), we had tucked two under our broody Silkie behind. She is an excellent and doting mama. Not sure if the baby we lost was just not 100% after the trip, or if it was something else environmental. Anyway, we went today and got another 2 babies from a breeder I trust who keeps the babies separated. He suggested that we possibly use duramyacin just in case coccidiosis was the culprit with the last baby. We've had no trouble and no loss in the past when we've put babies from him under our broody before. If it was Coccidiosis, should I do a round of corid? Is that safe for week old chicks? I would prefer not to medicate my babies unless I have to. We are all organic and non gmo. Any advice is welcome.
