    Thank you Chickisoup. I found one dead yesterday morning and saw some bloody stools. I called all over trying to find some corrid. When DH got off we got some and found one more dead. Three looked sick so I put them on the porch in a cage to dropper feed them. This morning they are drinking and two are eating but all still alive.
    I had no choice but to put them outside after the attacks kept happening. But they are over 2 months old and fully feathered. They should have been fine. But the TSC quit caring the medicated chick starter. So I called their Corp. office yesterday and talked with them, they will get it back in the stores here for us.

    Caprino our buck dropped dead a couple of months ago but managed to get a few of our goats pregnant.

    here we have the first kid born - a girl!! she is half Nubian.- another girl would be fantastic.

    In six months our ipil-ipil trees should be big enough to start harvesting limbs - perfect goat food - and perfect timing for a new buck.

    Oz - first I've heard of Dimethox, I will have to see if that's something available locally or whether I'll have to order in - and what a little cutie-pie your new doeling is!

    I just posted this on the Salmonella thread under emergencies where I earlier posted the links/info on the first show on Monday and the follow-up and link to the archive of the first show. Both of these shows should be interesting to all whether you bought their chicks or not because it's loaded with good information on the how's, why's and how to deal with salmonella.


    Ok, so, the Chicken Whisperer has managed to get BOTH the owner of Mt Healthy Hatchery and a rep from Tractor Supply Co (who sold their chicks) to join in on his follow-up broadcast on the Salmonella outbreak tomorrow. For specifics on time and the link, go to the Chicken Whisperer's page on FB. Should be an interesting show.

    On the California Northern thread we call it the S (Sulfadimethoxine) medicine. Out in the Sonoma County area, some have to use it because the Cocci is very bad there and chicks die without it. Here in Woodland, Corid works fine. It would be a good medicine to have on hand if you had a type of cocci that was killing your chicks. Some Breeds seem to have less resistance to cocci too.
