    What Rooster Booster product? There are many products with the Rooster Booster label. There could be a number of causes. There's mucous and some blood which is not a good sign. When was the last time you used a Coccidiosis preventative?

    maybe you should give them/ her lots of fiber after the booster so that they/ she doesn't get the diarhea type stuff.

    as a worm preventative for the future, i have heard that you can put apple cider vinegar in the drinking water, i beleive that it is supposed to be unpleasant for the worms in their gut. i think the ratio os 1tbsp/ 1gal. you may want to look that one up. i hope the worms in your future have a nasty vinegar experience![​IMG]

    Update: I did a dose (4-5 drops) of Ivermectin pour on onto the back of her neck, and started all the girls on Ampro-med (Corid) yesterday. By evening, she was moving around normally and enjoying a dust bath. Today she seems 100%, she's energetic and her tail is up! The poop under her spot on the roost had a little slime in it, but nothing like those gross poos yesterday.

    I guess I'll never know if it was roundworms or Cocci, but either way I'm glad she's better. Thanks, all, for the advice!

    Apple cider vinegar will not prevent nor treat worms.

    My money's on the amprolium, not the ivermectin, that's how quickly amprolium can work. Might be a good idea to look into getting some Safeguard or Valbazen for worming.

    Thanks, Kathy! I plan to use rooster booster dewormer once a month. I just freaked out when she got lethargic and reached for the ivermectin.
