    I have four chicks that are sick, I have been treating them with Thyme and a little bit of vinegar and water also I heard vinegar is full of probiotics. They still look healthy, they're fighting off the sickness and I put them in a separate box so that they won't spread the sickness. I sure do not want to lose my blue splash chicks and my other ones

    Um..no they are not.
    It is highly unlikely at this age.
    Coccidiosis if much more likely.

    Can you get some Corid?

    Hi Hannah
    Really? That's odd that they would get marek's at such a young age, i'm no expert but I just haven't heard of that happening until now. Chickens usually don't make a recovery from Marek's. Marek's has no treatment that really helps, well at least that's what i've been told. I have heard of, and seen videos of, chickens making a recovery from Marek's but it is random and rare.

    I definitely agree on that guy's but one of the mothers was sick with mareks disease and I'm not sure if she just pass it to the chicks or not

    Hi Hannah
    Did the mom hatch out those chicks or did you incubate them? I don't think chickens can pass marek's to their eggs but again i'm not 100% sure.

    the mother hatch them I have a little female hinds but one of the females was sick and she look depressed. I have gotten some medical advice and they told me that the odds were she had because of her age but you know medical doctors they're not precise. At the same time I did not want to spend time taking them all to veterinarians all the time
