    I lost 2 more babys this morning. I really don't know what else to do. The bloody poo is gone and they are acting fine. I've not had to wash any more bottoms they look great. I am still giving electorlites and med. chick starter I can't find any non-med in my area. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Why are you giving eletrolytes and med. starter feed?

    So I take it they had cocci? And you treated with sulmet or amporolium? And then a few more died on you still? Just keep feeding the medicated feed, which I am assuming has aprolium to help with them continue building their immunities, and just keep them warm. If they had a hard bout of cocci, some just might just not make it because it is very hard on their systems. Don't give too many electrolytes though, as too much can be a bad thing.

    Thankyou for the replys. I am not sure what they had (have). I posted the other day about nasty bottoms and bloody poo.

    Sounds like cocci to me, too. You need to get a coccidiostat in their water or buy some medicated feed until they get through this. They are contracting it through droppings, so you could lose them all if you don't take action.
