Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I just purchased it at Tractor Supply (Corid amprolium 20% soluble powder coccidiostat). I'm currently giving it to my goose at 1-1/2 teaspoons per gallon of water for 5 days.
You can also thank Miss Lydia, Casportpony, and Allears . These ladies are the ones helping me .
Yes in some ways, but you are the only one who got back to me on Where to get Corid and how much to give it and how much water, so I am thanking You for that :) I felt like a dog trying to hold my head above water and I wasn't getting the answers I needed, so thank You.
Well in that case you're very welcome. How's your turkey doing?
The tom (tommy)'s poo has firmed up but the female (Trudy) is runny . . .3rd day on antibiotic, which is the only thing I could get my hands on and the local Feedmill suggested it. but today we ran to another Feedmill out of town that had Corid, so I am going to start that this afternoon. thanks for asking! Yeah, we were going to Have the turkey's for the holiday but my husband got attached to them and named them, so they will be Guests this year, we will probably eat the offspring. LOL
just found this by castportpony from back in 2013 "
Due to some confusion on dose amounts regarding the powder, I decided to do some research and this is what I have so far. For those of you that use powder Corid, if you have been using 1/2 teaspoon per gallon (~270mg) you haven't been using enough.
The preventative dose (.006%) for Corid Powder is 1/3 teaspoon.
The preventative dose (.006%) for Corid liquid is 1/2 teaspoon.
The moderate outbreak dose (.012%) for Corid Powder is 3/4 teaspoon.
The moderate outbreak dose (.012%) for Corid liquid is 1 teaspoon.
The severe outbreak dose (.024%) for Corid Powder is 1.5 teaspoons
The severe outbreak dose (.024%) for Corid liquid is 2 teaspoon.
Corid mixing instructions for preventative (.006%) and moderate (.012%) outbreak dosing.
Amprol 20% powder:
Amprol 9.6% liquid:
Indications: For the treatment of coccidiosis.
Amount: Administer at the 0.012 percent level in drinking water as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for 3 to 5 days (in severe outbreaks, give amprolium at the 0.024 percent level); continue with 0.006 percent amprolium-medicated water for an additional 1 to 2 weeks."
And this link has these instructions:
"Poultry - as Soon As Caecal Coccidiosis Is Diagnosed, Give 0.024% Amprolium In The Drinking Water For 5 To 7 Days. Continue The Treatment With 0.006% Amprolium Medicated Water For An Additional One To Two Weeks. No Other Source Of Drinking Water Should Be Available To The Birds During This Time."
Very good to have run across this!
Oh my gosh! Here is another answer from another flockmaster. . . .so which one do we go with?
"mmaddies's mom, you're good at math. You're correct, 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water. Mix the corid daily with fresh drinking water for 5 consecutive days."
Heres what i did find that you can't overdose so i guess im going with 3/4 - 1 t per gallon and it's so good to know that we need to change water daily! for medicine to work
