Crowded conditions and warm, wet weather do contribute and sometimes they are stressed for some reason and that also contributes. I think liquid albon is the best treatment. Your vet should have that on hand and tell you the different amounts according to the weight of your goats. I use a feed with a coccidiastat in it but it only works to prevent cocci not cure it so they need to be clean of cocci and then using the feed should prevent further problems if they are consuming enough. Probably the 12 week old would eat enough but the younger ones probably are eating a large enough amount to prevent it. You may need to give them monthly treatments until they are eating more. You did the right thing getting the fecals.
