    My chickens are 4 months old they very light in weight not growing good also loosing feathers there poop is a dark pink reddish in colour. Then they get weak and die. I have treated my chickens 2 months ago for 10 days it was cocidiosis. My birds where treated with amprolium. All proper cleaning was done; Birds had a nice dry barn. Why all of a sudden birds show symptoms of it again. I lost over half of my chicken, the adult birds stop laying but no symptoms. I am so sad so much lost and so many good birds. My work and money is gone. What to do I don’t know any more. ?? What can I treat them with?? It seem like the treatments never work. I lost some during the treaments and still loosing them after the treatments..???

    I'm sorry you are going through this... what kind of chickens are they?
    Are their combs and wattles pale?
    Are they eating and drinking?
    Do they seem listless?
    I hope we can figure this out fast

    This question should be moved to emergencies board. Hopefully it can be answered there.

    You might consider necrotic enteritis and look at the information to see if it matches what you are seeing. Also some vets will do a fecal test for a small fee, and can check for cocci in the poo.

    If it is coccidiosis again, then they need to be treated again. I have had to treat a couple of times, twice. But the time between treatments was only several days, not months as in your case.

    I hope you can find the answer!
