    my bantams have diarrhea but i am feeding them scratch, layers pellets and fruit and veg. I also feed them mealworms and Porrage they seem to be all healthy as I regularly give them health checks by holding them upside down to check there back passage and feathers. I don't see why they have diarrhea, I certainly hope it isn't COCCIDIOSIS!?!?!?!

    We also feed them scraps of marmite toast and bread that we don't eat. They love it :)

    PLEASE SUGGEST SOMETHING, IM IN NEED OF SOME HELP. get back to me here or on my email @ [email protected] @

    Try apple cider vinegar in their water.

    Most likely isn't cocci, but it could be worms.

    I would definitely give them ACV in their water though. It's helpful by promoting good gut flora.
