    my poor girl. day two on medication. Vet said Coccidios plus a ton more parasites, tape worm, etc. I had her vaccinated for Coccidiosis from Meyers when i bought her. Shouldnt that have prevented her from getting it???

    [​IMG] I hope Peaches get better soon. She is such a pretty girl.

    There is no way you could have prevented her from getting cocci, it is always in the soil. The parasites may have weakened her enough to be susceptible to it though. All you can do is watch for signs of parasites in the future and worm regularly to stop this from happening again. Taking her to the vet for a diagnosis may end up saving your whole flock.
