Ok, hold on. Stop creating new threads everytime someone responds. Keep all your responses in the same thread or you will not get the help you need for your chick.

Personally, I'm not aware that a squishy crop = coccidiosis in chicks.
Can you give more info so we have an idea of what is going on with your chick?
How old are your chicks?
How many chicks and what is your setup?
What happened and in what order?
What are they eating?
Do they have grit?
Have you checked their vents for blockage?

Electrolytes and probiotics will not treat coccidia. Is there blood in the stool?

What Ive seen from your other posts, someone told you your chicks have cocci because 1 died and they both have squishy crops? That's not indicative of coccidosis. More like an impaction. Do you give grit?

Overheating can also cause crop function to slow down. It could be a completely normal chick, that has just eaten and filled up the crop for the evening. Pictures are worth a thousand words. It will help narrow down any potential issues and help rule things out.

Pictures? Month old chicks inside a house don't really need heat any longer. They should be feathered in enough to start adjusting to outside temps. Could be an overheating problem.
