Is the persistent coccidiosis vet confirmed by test or being symptomatically diagnosed at home? If it is truly persistent coccidia sis that would seem to indicate underlying issues preventing the development of the birds own response to the local cocci it is being exposed to
Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Dignosed confirmed with my vet took my chicken in to be seen im.lucky he sees birds and fowl! He is great

We did amprollium treatment with whole flock twice and then a pill, can't remember the name of it right now and she still got bouts of diarrhea

I have no clue. Im.guessing it just makes the gut more acidic so it's harder for the cocci to survive I think the probitoics help a lot too

None of the other birds had issues she had this all happen when she got bumble foot too maybe her immune system was taxed

But she seems better now with minor flare ups. I was worried about the other birds but they are fine no issues at all this whole time
