These are my first chicks. They are pooping blood, and my sister and i got Corid for them. Our favorite one, Alf, a blue silkie, is the worst. He doesn't drink the water with the Corid. He isn;t active, he is eating, but he doesn't drink very much of the water. My sister said that we could give him just the Corid and have him drink lots of normal water after. My question is can you just give the chick the Corid, and then give him water? Also, How much Corid should we give him?? Some facts about our flock that might help, We don't know the gender We think that Alf is a pullet We have 8 chicks all together Only the 4 older silkies poop blood Alf isn't active "He" is about 3 weeks old We have no laying chickens We have 4 other chicks that are about 1 1/2 weeks old We live in Mid Coast maine If you need more info, i'll be online. Also please say if you are a professional or not. I want to know if I am getting known info or just guesses. Please hurry, he could go any day.
