    I have been having ALOT of rust colored diarrhea in the coop run lately...
    It has been coming from the 2 month old chicks, and I dont know what to do.

    What causes this?

    I am treating them for a suspected case of cocci, but havent seen any blood in the stools, just runny rust colored droppings.

    What should I do?!

    Is it just cocci showing itself, or is it something else?

    They arent really showing any other symptoms, besides maybe grouping together.

    UGGHHH.... I just had 6 of them die late yesterday evening (from a dog), and now this.... [​IMG]

    It looks exactly like that except it has no solid in it... just that rust colored stuff.

    Almost all the manure looks like that, so I dont know if it is Ceacal..

    Thanks for the replies so far,
    Jason

    last summer it seemed to come on when they were hot, I noticed some today and it has been over 80 the last 2 days and Ive seen them sitting in front of the fan panting.
