    So one of my chickens has had this and died I can't remember what it is called and the treatment, I need to get the medicine today or tommorow, we got him and his "wife" as a pair, so it would even more sad that they would be split up. Also the one that died was a baby, he seems to be moving more than the baby did.

    Other than sleeping a lot, what are the symptoms? Did he have coccidiosis? Symptoms are lethargy/sleepiness, diarrhea (sometimes bloody,) poor appetite, puffing up in a ball, ruffled feathers, and pale skin. Treatment for coccidiosis would be Corid (amprollium) 1 tsp powder or 2 tsp liquid per gallon of water for 5 days.

    Looking back at some of your older posts, it seems that you had some fowl pox. Is that what is going on again?
