    Well I called Foys and even though they have Baycox in the catalog, they can no longer sell it.

    He said he had a product called Coccizet which is Amprolium and ethotabate ( a 250ml for 28.95 )

    I The Silkies look ok (hard to tell if they are pale)

    But I am worried about the leghorn babies. I have the heater on them now and the seem like their feathers are not so fluffed but they are pale.

    In answer to your question (about the e.coli) yes.
    Whatever you decide do it quick >>>cocci damages the intestines .sometimes irreparably which will affect your birds ability to absorb nutrients if this happens... and make sure if you buy the product for pigeons that you know the correct dosage for chickens.

    They seem to be getting better formed poops now today finally. I suppose this means they will have a lifetime of problems absorbing nutrients. I suppose I need vitamins but not too many. Hmmm. Will have to see about that in a few days.

    Well at least they are all nice and toasty now. Luckily the coop hasnt burned down yet. lol I am going to get a bulb soon so that heater wont be needed.
