    We have a bunch of 6-month-old chickens. One of the roosters has diarrhea. He's had it for a while. I tried vinegar in the drinking water, but I don't think it's working.
    All the other chickens are as healthy as can be. What could it be? He's low in the pecking order.

    Could be cocci.... or a bacteria.... ect

    Put terramycin powder in their water.....stir... get something that treats chickens for cocci..... if the terramycin doesn't work....
