    I can get an accurate weight tomorrow but I'm guessing around 12-15 lbs

    Sounds like blackhead. You will also need treat them for cecal worms with Safeguard at 0.23ml per pound, repeat in ten days. You might also want to buy some Baytril because the probably also have E.coli.

    Ok . I have safeguard . And will do the others first thing in the morning. When the other med gets here do I give to all even thought they aren't showing signs yet? I know it's coming I've been losing one ever 1-2 weeks. How many tablets for how many days?

    I'm not good at guessing but that's probably about same as mine. I'll go get the sick one to weigh now

    Worm all of them ASAP. If all are about the same weight as mine, probably okay to give one whole pill once a day for five days, and I would treat all of them. If any are skinny, maybe 1/2 a pill? Let me know what they weigh...
