One of the most common ailments chickens can suffer is coccidiosis. Coccidia are parasites on chickens, which infect the chicken's stomach tissue upon ingestion. Once attached to the tissue, the organism starts to multiply and spread. In severe cases, this will cause bleeding within the intestinal tract or cecal, which starts to have a negative impact on the animal's health. If left untreated, coccidia can be fatal. Smart backyard chicken keepers keep Amprolium on hand and use as it as a preventative measure against this fatal illness.

Young birds are often more susceptible to coccidiosis because surviving birds will develop an immunity. The parasite is more likely to thrive in the warmer months, and it is commonly found in broilers and layers. Symptoms: Symptoms of coccidiosis can be detected early.
