This may be a bit of one, sorry. i had quite a few deaths recently, started out with 12 little white ones, got a hen and rooster to keep the rats from trying to eat them and then also got 10 broiler chicks. went on holiday, someone else was taking care of them, then a week after i got back 3 of the broilers died when i had to go away to the city gone 7 hours. i put it down to heat and not having enough space. then a week later the smaller white ones started dying. took me days to find a vet who could handle chickens who said cococidosis. Anysways its hot here all the time and i think its under control now (left with 5 little white ones, 6 broilers) they have just had 1 week on sulfadimethoxine sodium trimethoprim. my rooster now seems sick, hes become very needy at night and shows me his runny nose and sneezes in front of me. but each morning he looks clear. 2 to 3 days, so put himon erythromycin tilmicosin. is he sick or is it just from heat?
