What did you worm with? There could still be worms.

 

Also, after a worming, I always pump them with probiotics for at least a week following. Then I use them a couple of times a week anyway. 

 

Too many vitamins and electrolytes will cause diarrhea as well.

 

Depending on what you wormed with, you might consider another wormer just in case. Then get them on probiotics. These can help not only with boosting the immume system but to heal any fungal infections. Add a good vitamin supplement to their diet. I use Calf Manna Performance Pellets in the feed. I have never had any trouble with diarrhea with this supplement. 

 

If the bird still has diarrhea, you might try an antibiotic on her. She could have something like E.coli or an Enteritis of some sort. 

All our local store had was Piperazine so that is what we have used the 2 times we have wormed.  They now carry Rooster Booster Multi-Wormer Triple Action.  It was about a month ago that we wormed. Is it too soon to worm again?  Would that be an ok one to try?  I don't know why I didn't think to follow it with probiotics, I will get some.  Thank you all so much!

I would throw everything at this....Corid in case of Coccidiosis, if you can get a hold of any Safeguard Liquid Goat Wormer or even Safeguard Equine Paste, (you can get the past at Walmart or pet supply stores) I would reworm with something else. Then you might get some antibiotics in the bird. Baytril is wonderful but expensive. Duramycin or Doxyclycline will work for Enteristisis. 

 

And I would do these in the order I suggested. The Corid is a 5 to 7 day thing, worming is a 3 to 5 day thing depending on what you worm with, and the antibiotics will be a week to 2 weeks depending on what you use.

Generic Baytril is cheap:

 

Baytril (Enrofloxacin)

Banned for use in poultry, so read this before using:

http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2005/07/fda-ban-enrofloxacin-use-poultry

Consult a veterinarian for dosing instructions

 


 

Generic 10% (100mg/ml) prices start at $24.47: 

1000

I don't believe that the bottles above have any manufacturing  info on them and they certainly are not meant to be used for injections. IMNSHO, injectable anything should come from a sterile, sealed, container.

 


 

Oral Baytril 10% (100mg/ml) - $25.49

http://www.allbirdproducts.com/newproductpages/baytril.html

 


 

 

If you buy this one, be sure to order the 10% one

This bird died from a capillary worm infestation :

 

This one almost died from capillary worms and coccidiosis:

 

Roundworms confirmed by fecal flotation.

 

Wormer picctures:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Safeguard,  Panacur, liquid for goats or cattle, or paste for horses or cattle, any of these will work. Like @TwoCrows

said, even Walmart has Safeguard. :D

Piperazine only treats large roundworms. Rooster Booster might work, but they do have to eat enough of it for many days in a row for it to be effective. Would be best to get some Safeguard.

 

Even places like petsmart and petco have Safeguard, but it's for dogs, so not as easy to give:
