Hello everyone! I have a 7.5 month old White Jersey Giant. Around 2 weeks back, she started acting lethargic, but a few days later she was fine. She became lethargic yet again a few days later, but she was ok in a few days. 4 days ago, she became lethargic YET AGAIN, but now it’s even worse. Since 4 days a go, she won’t eat or drink nearly anything (she does occasionally), she is way less energetic than she used to, and she has lost around 0.5-1 pound. She also has some greenish diarrhea. Is this coccidiosis, and is so, what should I do? Thanks for all of your help.





@6BeachChicks could you help with this? Thanks
@cherrynberry do you have any idea how to solve this?

Okay, I think you should definitely treat for coccidiosis. I’ll find the dose in a minute.
I don’t want her to pass away, she’s one of my favorites, but if it happens, it happens. Here’s a pic if it helps. This was taken a few days ago, but she looks the same, although her comb isn’t as bright red as in the 3rd picture. Sorry for the bad quality, they were taken in a hurry.

Whoa, b4 you treat for parasites. Have you wormed your flock at all. How's your housing? Do you free-range? Sounds a little wormy... can you take in a poop sample to you local vet for them to do a fecal float?
We bought her and some others as chicks, so I’m not sure if they are de-wormed. They are in a large chicken run we made for them, but we do let them free range every few days.
