    I have a baby barnevelder who is limping.

    I purchased her and 5 others 1 week ago today.

    I lost one of the five that she was purchased with last Tuesday. The one that passed had bloody stools that looked like raspberry jam...this seemed to be a strong sign of coccidiosis. I began treatment of Corid and everyone has seemed fine (except the one I lost as I figured out the coccidiosis thing too late for her).

    I just noticed the limping about an hour ago and every time I check on her it seems worse. I do not see any signs of infection or bumble foot. Is this a vitamin deficiency because of the Corid? What should I do? I had three that were acting lethargic (one with bloody stools) when I began administering the Corid, She was one of the ones that was acting lethargic but has become more and more active ever since...until this!

    Note: I have been giving 1.5 tsp of Corid powder in their water. It is mixed fresh every 24 hours.
