Lethargic chick - Page 3

I'm so sorry for your loss. Yes, you should treat the others, it can't hurt. Also, watch for bloody/runny poop.

I am so sorry for your loss. I would go ahead and treat the others but am wondering if they should be given the preventative dose or the treatment dose since they are symptom free. Maybe casportpony, eggsessive or Two Crows can answer? I do not want to misinform or give ill advice.

I would use the treatment dose as one chick has already gotten cocci, but I don't want to misinform you either...

I finally got powdered corid. With my chicks being 1-2 weeks old would the dosage still be 1/2 tsp per gallon of water?

If you want to treat them, the dose is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 3-5 days (I do five), then 1/3 teaspoon for 7-14 days (I do seven). Make fresh daily.

Chicks or adults, the dose is the same.

Awesome thanks. I noticed today they are starting to get loose stools. Here's hopefully to a speedy recovery for them
