Neon poop and corrid !

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I posted a thread about my new year old silkies having bloody poop. I am now giving them probiotics electrolytes and corrid for the possible cocci. I see a minor amount of blood every probably 10 poops but the silkies are now pooping neon green and neon blue. Does this mean I am giving too much corrid?

Green droppings are usually from not eating food. How much Corid are you mixing? Normally for an outbreak of cocci, the dosage is 2 tsp per gallon using the liquid, or 1 1/2 tsp of the powder Corid. Corid water should be the only source of water, and nothing else should be mixed with it.

Crud! I am giving two tsp powder in one gallon. I figured they are older and can handle the higher end . Should I stop the probiotics and electrolytes?

Just take out a quart of the Corid water, and add more water to it. Actually, it is hard to overdose Corid, since they don't always drink a lot. I would save the probiotics and electrolytes , vitamins for after Corid.

I've seen that neon green poop before with sick hens. I was told it had to do with dehydration.
