Thanks Kathy for the welcome.
Yes those doses should work fine.
But as i said i had major problems with cocci and am still unsure if i have it under control.
Is it so that Corid will only treat 3 of the 9 cocci that affect chickens?
I have singled out one of my sickest hens and am on my 3rd day of amoxicillin treatment! I have wormed with wazine and i am pulling my hair out over this. I am spending 5 or more hours a day picking up poop the coop is impeccably clean.
Here is my set up......
Free range, feed a grower that is lacto bacillious fermented, starting adding 1 cup a day of ground up cat feed (32% protien) to the diet after the fermentation process. A scoop of rooster booster. My girls are all thin as a rail!!!! Breast bone sharp and protruding.
Because i've lost 3 hens i now only have 3 hens that are laying age (no eggs yet) 18 months. And 3 mature roosters. That are very healthy and full breasted.
Could it be so simple as i have too many roosters?
32% protein?????????? Think about that for a minute. A balanced diet is balanced for a reason. Any imbalance, especially an incredible imbalance like feeding twice the amount of recommended protein, is a recipe for organ failure.
All you need to keep chickens healthy is a balanced feed, clean soil, clean water, fresh air, sunshine. That's it. Take away all the supplements~especially the cat food...it's for cats, not for chickens~all the treats, all the medicines~every time you dose a chicken it weakens it even further, rendering its own immune system ineffectual, quit worming them, and quick picking up poop. Their own poop is not going to kill them.
I'm thinking being super clean, giving them a too rich diet, and repeated dosings of whatever meds you have on hand is not working, so you might want to stop all of that. And, yes, you have too many roosters. Even one would be too many for 3 hens and causes extreme stress to them...an overly stressed bird is a bird ripe for illness.
Keep the fermented food, start a deep litter~NOT a deep bedding~system in the coop and run, increase ventilation in the coop...I have a feeling that's probably out of balance as well, get rid or or pen separately the three roosters, and get their bodies and their environment in balance. That's all you need....balance.
One cup of cat food won't hurt them. Many peafowl breeders use cat food to boost protein levels for their birds. All things in moderation.
