    Hello- my nine week old cockerel is pooping blood, lethargic and puffed up. Still eating and drinking. Just started this morning with the symptoms. I am headed to town to pick up medication- corid. Do I need to treat my whole flock? Should I just put the meds in his water or give through a dropper? This is my daughters baby- thank you for any help!!!!!

    I think it's best to treat the whole flock.

    Probably coccidiosis.
