    This morning one of my sultan chicks started pooping blood but other than that she is acting normal. The blood looks new not old so I was thinking maybe she ate some of the bedding. I have ordered some medicine, corI'd but it won't be here till sometime next week. I cleaned the area and put probiotics in their water before i had to go to work. Wanted some suggestions on what to do while waiting for the meds. I will provide pictures when I get home if there is still blood with the crop.

    This post needs to be moved to disease section.

    You may have caught the condition early. Get the birds on coccidiostat laced water today. I would also make so ground they are on is dry and relatively clear of feces.

    They will loose weight over next few days even if your treatment kicks in quickly. Be concerned about keeping them hydrated and electrolytes added to water may be warranted.
