I'm thinking coccidiosis

Man this doesn't look good- out of 4 posts in the hospital section, they're all mine. Honestly, most of my birds are quite healthy and happy!  PG, back me up on this, you've seen them:). I'm sorry though PG,  3 of the BHR babies you sent me have come down with coccidiosis. From their symptoms and the  time of year, I'm certain that's what it is. I started them on Sulmet 3 days ago and put them under a heat lamp inside.  2 are looking much better. All are eating and drinking. I just wanted you to know, as I know you trusted me with your very special birds. I'm doing everything I can to help them feel better. The dorkings and the older EOs are doing fabulously. Maybe they were too young to put outside. I'm sorry.

Re: I'm thinking coccidiosis

Oh no, so sorry Susan! Absolutely I will vouch that your birds are well cared for and wanting for nothing!!!


Please do not blame yourself. Moving them was probably stressful and these things do happen! I SO hope that they recover!


And glad the others are doing okay!!

2 out of 3 are looking better and putting on weight. 1 is looking a bit better, but is so thin. Not done treatment yet so we'll see. I'll keep trying!

Re: I'm thinking coccidiosis

Which baby is the sickest Susan? The little light colored white legged pullet would be my guess, she just seemed so tiny.

Is so hope they all make it!

Re: I'm thinking coccidiosis

PG, the little one is fine- never got it. Its the dark one with all the grey and brown. He does seem to be doing much better today, so I put them back outside in the lottle coop we both have (its plus 34 today so I don't think they'll be cold!!

Re: I'm thinking coccidiosis

Isn't this late heat crazy? This week has been the warmest we've seen all year, high twenties all week. Fresh air might help them seeing as it's so warm. Poor babies.

I gotta say I am now paranoid. I only have two of the young ones left as I rehomed the rest. This morning I was convinced they were sick. Not active enough, ruffly feathers and possibly bloody poo. So I cleaned out their pen so I could inspect each poo. I think they are fine, just all in my head but I still worry.

Re: I'm thinking coccidiosis

You guys have crazy weather out there too!  We had humidex of above 40 at the end of last week and by Monday is was only 12 degrees for a high with a cold wet north wind but today it was sunny and hot again.  I had my first run in with cocci this spring too.  I have always fed non medicated starter but switched to medicated for the next batch just before they were moved out in to that area where the previous chicks had cocci.  Cocci likes wet conditions.  Hot dry days will help more then any meds ever do to kill cocci outside.  I ended up treating mine with same stuff that we use if the calves get it and it worked too, I just mixed a partial pill into their water for a few days.  Neither my vet or the feed store carried anything for chickens.
