    Congrats on the new Lavs. You will love them. I got my first mailed chicks about a month ago and it was Lavs and Blacks. I know the feeling, we were so excited. They are doing great and growing fast.
    Good luck!

    the dirt idea works ! if you do use corid it is good to use a full dose for the recommended time ( 5 days if I recall) then half dos another 5 to build a resistance
    congrats on all the new lavender chicks. Such a pretty breed

    My two-week old lavender chick that I thought was suffering from "failure to thrive" appears to be improving somewhat. I had thought she and the sick Basque were suffering from cocci, but once I got them eating again, the Basque started running around and acting like a normal chick. The lavender spends a lot of time eating, but otherwise she just stands there, no digging or quick movements.
    Today I saw her jump up on something and flap her wings. She is definitely the smallest and she does spend a lot of time under the Ecoglow, but I'm hoping the small improvements will lead to bigger ones. Time will tell.

    I got mine Tuesday and they are beautiful. I am hoping to see more discussion about colors. I love John's chickens and he is one whale of a nice guy. My are based on his stock and come from Snowbird . It is always Great when I can do business with a brother in Christ. . They have an unmistakable "look" which I admire very much.
