    Pullet

    When did she start to get her copper?
    My almost four week old BCM cockerel is already getting copper on his shoulders.

    Lovely pullet.
    So sorry you lost the rest to cocci. How disappointing.

    Take heart. When they get the copper in early, and if they get too much copper coloring, they often lay the darker eggs. Here's hoping :fl

    yep, luckily it's a pullet! :D
    Sorry to hear that you lost your other birds to cocci. I just lost my 6 year old barred rock to cocci :( If she starts showing any symptoms give her some corid 9.6 amprolium. Liquid corid lasts longer that powder.
