I've got 2 new little girls (8-9 wks and 12 weeks). The lady at the chook farm said that the Department of Agriculture recommends preventative dosing for coccidiosis any time livestock is transported and I've got a sachet of Amprolium 200 soluble powder (amprolium 200g/kg) to give the girls.....
The dosage is on the label but how much (or rather how little) should I mix up for 2 tiny little chooks by themselves? It says that a fresh solution should be prepared daily (given for 14 hours every 4th day for prevention), so I don't want to have to dispose of huge amounts of medicated solution (eg the 25 litres referred to on the label).
At 30g/25 litres, that works out at just under a gram per litre (I think, maths isn't my strong suit). If I mixed them up a litre, would that be enough for 24 hours? And I have to take their normal waterer out, yes?
Any advice from the experienced gratefully received, thanks.
