It sounds possibly like she could have coccidiosis, which is treated with Corid (amprollium) in the water for 5 days. Dosage is 2 tsp of the liquid or 1 1/2 tsp of the powder per gallon of water for 5 days. How old is she, and have you added any new chickens lately? Read here about cocci:
Thanks for the reply. I have not added any new birds to my flock. They are all about s year old. I checked on her this morning and her poop didn't have very much slim anymore. I went to a feed store and they gave me new-chlor to treat it. Have you heard anything about this?
I don't know what that is. What is the generic name on the container? Corid or Ampromed are found in the cattle departments of feed stores and are specifically for treatment of coccidiosis. Sulmet or Sulfadimethoxine may also be used, but treat fewer strains. Is she more alert and eating?
