14 week old lav. Buffs bloody stool

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got these two from a npip breeder who won't let anyone on the place. I have had them a week and a half. One has given me bloody poop last night and this morning. Do I need to treat with corrid? They are in with(Stupid I know) my 6 month old RIR. Dosage? Is it 3T to a gallon liquid?

Edited -- I misread your post.  I haven't treated for Cocci so I can't help you, sorry!

 

If it is coccidia (and it sounds like it) your RIR should be fine as long as he/she isn't exposed to a lot of bloody poops.

The correct dose for Corid 9.6% solution is 9.5 CC per gallon of water.

That equates to approximately 2 tsp per gallon.

Treatment should be done for 5 days, fresh solution each day.

With bloody droppings, I would treat.

Thanks. I was unsure of the dosage especially with two ages. I need to learn this stuff. I have only had chickens since the first of August.
