    Treatment is Corid.

    Corid powder - 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 5-7 days, then 1/3 teaspoon for 7 days.
    Corid liquid - 2 teaspoons per gallon for 5-7 days, then 1/2 teaspoon for 7 days.

    Tractor Supply carries the powder in the cattle section.

    Can you post a picture of their poop?

    I strongly suggest that you find a vet to will check the poop for coccidiosis, worms, bacteria and yeast.
