Hi, last year was my first time raising meat chicks. I lost half of my chicks to an outbreak of coccidiosis. I changed things this year, but I just found a good bit of blood in their stools and noticed that their combs are pale. They are still eating and drinking normally, so should I just go ahead and put the coccidiostat in their water now? What if they are fighting it and could win, since they are being fed purina start and grow medicated. Unfortunately their waterer (gravity fed nipples run through pvc) are leaking, and I have not figured out how to get it to stop, so I have feeders lined up under it to catch the water, but some of the bedding still gets wet. I am going to get all new bedding today to completely dry out their coop. I was feeding them free choice (they are 2 weeks old now), but I noticed that they were not as active as I would like, so I cut it down to just three times a day so that they would be hungry when it was feeding time. Their activity has gone up, but now I am seeing signs of coccidiosis, which is really bad because if they are hungry they can eat the poo all around...???? Ahh! Should I lower the protein by mixing in a different feed, so that I can still feed them free choice and they don't grow too fast???
