    I have 2 crates, each with 4 chicks. This morning I noticed a bloody poo in one crate.. None of the chicks are showing physical signs, yet, but id rather give them all a dose of antiibotiics to be on the safe side. My feed store carries Sulmet and Tetracyclene. Which is best for treatment of possiblle cocci, as that's my best guess, consdering the bloody poop.

    Sulmet and Corid are the two antibiotics recommended for cocci.

    Sulmet only treats two types of cocci and can be very hard on their kidneys.

    Corid treats all nine types and is safe to use long term.
