Thank you! That helps a lot. How should I preventatively treat for coccidiosis? Won't they be exposed already at the rescue farm? They are allowed outside on the dirt once the are in good enough health. I will talk to the people about if the treated for mites and dewormed already. Just for future reference: what is the egg wait time on Revolution mite treatment and on Wazine (I have had chickens for almost 4 years, I just forgot)? Also, can I treat with both at the same time?
Thank you for your help!
Since they have already been on the ground they will have built some resistance, the problem being that there are at least 9 different strains of the coccidia protozoa. So if they come to your place and encounter strains new to them they are again susceptible to coccidiosis while they develop resistance. As far as preventative treatment, you would do 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water if using the liquid Corid, 1/3 teaspoon if using the powder, make it fresh daily and do this for 21 days. This keeps the cocci from getting out of control while the bird is able to develop their own resistance.
I don't use Wazine or Revolution so I can't comment on using both at the same time but as far as egg withdrawal... you are usually good with a 10-14 day withdrawal after medicating. But again, I have never used Revolution on my birds so it would be good to look into that further.
