    14032C89-F7DE-4A04-BE12-8587BDB93B7A.jpeg i have an 11 week old sapphire gem pullet. I noticed she has some watery yellow looking poop and I was wondering if I should be alarmed. She seems a little slow today, follows the other hens around and kind of forages, but not a whole lot. She seems to sit and take a lot of breaks. I just wormed them with diatomaceous earth about a month ago, I also put acv in their water. Should I be worried? It was a hot day here yesterday, if that might have anything to do with it! Thanks!

    She is eating and drinking. She isn't fluffed up or anything when she sits.

    Hmm. Just to be on the safe side, why not administer Corid. If it is coccidiosis, it must be treated soon as possible. @Eggcessive can help you with a correct dosage amount. IMG_20190613_174008.jpg

    Can she get that at so young of an age?

    Definitely possible. Little tiny week old chicks can get coccidiosis. Here is the dosage for you. I'd treat for severe.

    Should I just treat her, or the whole flock?

    I would treat the whole flock, yes! It won't hurt.

    Yes, treat everyone. It just goes in the water and they all drink it. Easy to do.

    Ok, so I started them on Corid this morning. She’s been drinking from the water. How long will it take before I start to see an improvement in her behavior, if this is what she truly has?
