Corid, a brand of amprollium is usually available in powder packets there. Dosage is 1 1/2 tsp per gallon for 5 days. After finishing treatment give them several days of vitamins in their water with some probiotic plain yogurt in food. Can you post a picture of their droppings. Are any acting lethargic or hunched and not eating?

Hello Heather,



I think I spent about $25 on the powder and, from what I have read, it should be safe to treat everyone in the flock with.

Everyone is acting totally normal. Running around jumping on mama (my silkie) and eating and drinking. Im going to go check on them again and see if I find anymote abnormal droppings. Will take a picture if i see any.

Did you decide not to treat for cocci? and Jefferspet,com have Corid  for $17-18, but after shipping it is $25.

Should i treat for coccidiosis?

I would clean off the vent area with warm water and a bit of soap. If any chicks are showing lethargy, not eating, hunched or puffed up posture, or runny droppings with mucus or blood, then yes, I would treat for coccidiosis. All chicks will be exposed to coccidia in order to build up immunity to it. Those that get a big exposure may get the disease.  Read this article:
