    So this all started about 4 days ago. She wasn't acting quite like herself. She would walk around and forage with the others, but she would move slower and not really eat a whole lot or drink much. She will stand and take short naps. Her crop didn’t empty this morning and there was a little lump. I was able to massage it out pretty easily. I wormed my pullets about a month ago by putting diatomaceous earth in their feed. I am treating the whole flock with Corid. They are currently on day three. She doesn’t seem worse, but doesn’t seem better either. I’ve been giving her droppers full of the Corid water and a put a little apple cider vinegar in the dropper as well. I’m not quite sure what to do, the others seem fine. The vet isn't an option. Please help!!!! Here are pictures of her poop up starting 4 days ago, to most recent.

    How old is she? In the first couple of pics, it looks like white urates mixed with yellow stool or mucus. The last does look like yellow urates though, which might be a sign of liver problems. Those could be secondary to the coccidiosis or due to another problem. Stop th ACV since it does nothing to help now. DE is not a wormer. It also can irritate eyes and breathing for you and the chickens.

    I would give a few drops of the undiluted liquid Corid twice a day, in a ddition to the Corid water. Did you get a fecal test to confirm the possible coccidiosis? How much are you putting in the water?

    She is 11 weeks old. I started giving her a few drops of the liquid Corid yesterday, I gave it to her twice. I am putting 2 tsp of Corid for a gallon of water, which was recommended for severe. I have not had a fecal test done on her.

    I am going to tag @casportpony to see if she has any suggestions, such as antibiotics to treat a possible infection, as well as to keep treating for coccidiosis.
