Help! 9 Week Old chook possible coccidiosis? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Thanks so much everyone for all your information and input, I appreciate it! As Lucky is still living with her mother (a Silkie hen who is still attached to her kids even at 9 weeks lol) I will have to disinfect the whole coop and treat all the chickens. I'm just worried about consuming Bonnie's (the silkie chicken) eggs if she has the Sulfa-3 antibiotics though....I wonder if it affects their eggs?
If the Sulfa-3 doesn't do the job I suppose I could order the Corid online and try that? Will it be an issue if she's already had the Sulfa-3?

Since you are in Australia, can't you get baycox? it is superior to treat cocci- here in the US we can get in in small amounts- not as expensive that way

Hmm I did some research on Baycox, seems like a good treatment option. It is available online. Thanks for pointing that one out @artsyrobin

Chicken dose when using any 20% amprolium powder is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 5 days, then 1/3 teaspoon for 7 days. Other products available in the US are AmproMed and Amprol. In AU I think it's called Amprolium 200.
