    I would also give them access to heat 24/7, even if they don't use it, they have the option. Additional heat often helps when chicks are weak.

    It will also shake it's head when it drinks, along with the stumbling and drawing it's head in.

    Sorry you lost your chick. As I tried to say earlier cocci is a quick killer, usually once you notice it you only have a day or two to treat for it. Corid is not a good treatment for cocci, I lost many birds trying to use Corid. The problem with Corid is that in hard water the medication adheres to the minerals in the water that changes the chemical makeup rendering it less effective. My vet provided me with a link to a study that shows it isn't very effective for game birds. If you have sulfadimethoxine on hand you can save your peas from cocci.

    I now use sulfadimethoxine and Corid. Both orally.
