Hi guys,

It all started last Thursday when the droppings started to get very wet. Since then I have lost 4 youngs ones in the nest. The old birds are showing no signs of illness apart from the droppings. I treated for salmonella Thursday then, clean water til today now treating with trimax 4 in 1. Canker, cocci, worms and parasites. Droppings are still clear water, some are green others are whitish water.
They are fed twice a day on verse laga breeding mix atm.
Any ideas or advice will be welcome?

I would doubt you could treat for Salmonella in one day
Most treatments are courses ranging from 7 days onward depending on severity

I was told with the stuff I used to use it for 2 days then again in 3 weeks for another 2 days. I had the stuff off a veteran fancier.

Please keep us informed of developments -- how many young seem to be affected -- if all how many in loft ?
Maybe i am old fashioned but carnt point you in direction of medication but would advise clean and flash flame loft ,partings.

Getting a culture test done is probably your best bet

Reading your post would suggest to me that nestlings have a severe "E,Colli infection obtained from the parents, To treat I would put 20 Mls Vinegar per Litre of Water in drinkers and Lemon or Lime Juice on the feed for a couple of days. Acidify the gut should clear the problem.

I treated for ecolli on January 15th.it was trimax 4 in 1 for 5 days. Is it possible they could still have the infection?

Trimax 4 in 1 Contains: Ronidazole, Amprolium, Moxidectin. it therefore isn't for e-coli which is a bacterial infection.

You need to get your birds tested

I just realised it does not cover ecolli. I thought it did. What's the best thing for ecolli?

I am no expert but could it be a case of salt poisoning by which i mean the parents have gorged on grit minerals and clay blocks

Funny smell from the droppings would suggest a yeast infection....but I cannot tell you for certain, get a culture test done

sounds like streptococcal infection I would get culture done and if it is treat with doxycycline 10% or 12% strength.
hope you get sorted.
