    Just noticed this on the paper towels in the brooder from my 5 day old chicks. I've been changing the paper towels 2x a day to try to keep it clean and cleaning all their feeding dishes too :( What did I do wrong? And, if it is cocci, what do I do now?

    Cocci is normally only a problem after they are a few weeks old. Where did the chicks come from, a hatchery? It may be a little of intestinal shed. Just watch for anymore of that.

    Meyer hatchery. Is there anything preventative I should do just in case?
