Corid 20% Soluble Powder

Package weighs 10oz (283.5g) = 35 Tbls = 200mg Amprolium per gram

Formulas for conversions:

1oz = 29.5735ml

1oz = 28.3495g

1oz = 3.5 (3-1/2) Tablespoons (by weight for Corid powder only)

1oz = 10.5 (10-1/2) teaspoons (by weight for Corid powder only)

How much powder to mix to make one gallon of solution for each strength.

0.024% solution for severe outbreaks: give for 5 days

8oz/50gal = 8oz divide by 50 = 0.16oz/gal

8oz/50gal = 236.588ml divide by 50 = 4.73ml/gal

8oz/50gal = 226.796g divided by 50 = 4.536g/gal

8oz/50gal = 28 Tbls divide by 50 = 0.56 Tbls/gal (approx. 1/2 Tablespoon)

8oz/50gal = 84 tsp divide by 50 = 1.68 tsp/gal (round up/down to 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 teaspoons per gallon)

0.012% normal solution: give for 5 days

4oz/50gal = 4oz divide by 50 = 0.08oz/gal

4oz/50gal = 118.294ml divide by 50 = 2.37ml/gal

4oz/50gal = 113.398g divide by 50 = 2.27g/gal

4oz/50gal = 14 Tbls divide by 50 = 0.28 Tbls/gal (approx. 1/4 to 1/3 Tablespoon)

4oz/50gal = 42 tsp divide by 50 = 0.84 tsp/gal (round up/down 3/4 to 1 teaspoon per gallon)

0.006% 21-day preventative solution: give for 21 days

2oz/50gal = 2oz divide by 50 = 0.04oz/gal

2oz/50gal = 59.147ml divide by 50 = 1.18ml/gal

2oz/50gal = 56.699g divide by 50 = 1.133g/gal

2oz/50gal = 7 Tbls divide by 50 = 0.14 Tbls/gal (approx. 1/8 tablespoon)

2oz/50gal = 21 tsp divide by 50 = 0.42 tsp/gal (round up/down 1/3  to 1/2 teaspoon per gallon)

Clear as mud?

Thank you.

Coming up next is the drench solution using the same bird weights from the liquid drench examples. This one had me head scratching for a long time. I think I got it and hope it's right.

That one took me awhile to figure out.

Corid 20% Soluble Powder Drench solution. Package weighs 10oz (283.5g) 35 Tbls , 200mg Amprolium per gram.

1oz = 29.5735ml

1oz = 28.3495g (28349.52mg)

1oz = 3-1/2 Tablespoons or 10-1/2 teaspoons

Solution is mixed into 1 Quart (32oz) water. Dosage is 1 fluid ounce (30ml / 30cc) per 100lb (2.2kg) of body weight orally by syringe. Dosage is once daily for 5 days at 0.024% solution for treatment.

Mixture instructions: amount of Corid 20% Soluble Powder mixed with 1 Quart (32oz) water.

0.024% solution for severe outbreaks: once daily for 5 days

6oz/quart

177.441ml/quart

170.09g/quart

21 Tbls/quart (1-1/4 cups + 1 Tbls/quart)

63 tsp/quart (1-1/4 cups + 3tsp/quart)

2oz chick = 0.0567kg x 20mg amp = 1.134mg/kg

7oz chick = 0.19845kg x 20mg amp = 3.969mg/kg

1lb bird = .4536kg x 20mg amp = 9.072mg/kg

10lb bird = 4.536kg x 20mg amp = 90.72mg/kg

Find ml of Amprolium per dose at 20% (change to decimal 20% = 200).

2oz chick = 1.134mg amp divided by 200 = 0.00567 ml solution

7oz chick = 3.969mg amp divided by 200 = 0.019845 ml solution

1lb bird = 9.072mg amp divided by 200 = 0.04536 ml solution

10lb bird = 90.72mg amp divided by 200 = .4536 ml solution

The instructions for the drench said that at 0.012% it was to provide a dose of 10mg of amprolium per kg (2.2lbs) of body weight (5mg amprolium at 0.006%). Am I missing or overlooking something?  Do you give a different dose to varying bird weights? I guess I don't understand this post. Could you please explain? Did I get my math wrong and need to refigure? TIA.
