What's wrong with my chick!! HELP! She was fine this AM 😭 - Page 2

Have you gotten any Corid to start in their water? It's in the cattle medicines at feed stores in powder packets or liquid Dosage is 1 1/2 tsp of powder or 2 tsp of liquid to a gallon of water, and change it daily. I would place her back with the others and give them all Corid for 5 days. As for the sick chick, give her a couple of drops of undiluted Corid twice a day, and then dip her beak into the Corid water several times every hour. To make the concentrated Corid from the powder, take 1 1/2 tsp of powder and add to 2 tsp of water. Medicated feed does not necessarily prevent coccidiosis, so she needs the medicine in the Corid which is a higher concentration of amprollium.

She didn't make it. I had work at 8 and thanks to a surprise visit from my boss wasn't able to get out to run to the store until 12- and the closest store that had the Corid was 1:10h away. She was still breathing when I got back at 2:30 but died while I was diluting the liquid. Tried to give her a squirt still and hold her under the heat lamp and rub and stimulate her anyways- it was literally minutes after I got there she stopped. Couldn't save her.
Rookie move, cost the little one her life. I'll never not have it on hand again- and for sure be aware of all/any stores in my area that carry it 😢
