    I have lost %10 of my broilers to coccidiosis this year. the brooder is hot and damp, so I had it coming. Because these birds are going to be eaten, i don't want to medicate them with drugs. So I started putting crushed garlic in there water and it seems to be working. The birds are 2 weeks now and still in the same brooder. I haven't lost any more since I started the garlic treatment. Could it be that the garlic is working, or have the little chicks developed an immunity to the disease? There are fewer droppings that are pink and abnormal, but still present. are there any other natural treatments for coccidia.
