I see nothing to be worried about. Did you check out the poop page link from my earlier post? I study this page, it is essential to learn to distinguish between normal and abnormal poop. I'm no expert poopologist, so I reference the poop page often and I'm getting more adept at healthy poop identification all the time.:D

If I find dropping and do the treatment and still see blood in the droppings what's the next step? 

 

Treatment was corid 2 teas per gallon in the water. 

I mixed it about weekly the first 2 weeks then the last week i did fresh mix each day thinking that perhaps that's why is still saw blood after 2 weeks. so finished this last week with fresh corrid. 

 

Just want to know what to look for in recovery

If you did not mix a fresh dose of Corid every day, then they likely did not get the appropriate dose during that time.  If the last week was done fresh every day, that last week may have been successful if it was at least 5 days.


The correct dosing for Corid:

"The 9.6% Corid liquid dose I use is 10ml (2 teaspoons) per gallon for 5 days, then 2.5ml (1/2 teaspoon) per gallon for 7 days. Make fresh daily.

 

The 20% Corid powder dose I use is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 5 days, then 1/2 teaspoon for 7 days. Make fresh daily.

 

Medicated water must be their only source of water (no creeks, puddles ponds, etc.)"

 

 You can also make a drench with the corid to give to an individual bird if it's very sick.

If you have liquid corid, just use a drop or two straight.  For the powder you mix 1/2 tsp of powder in 10 ml of water.  Dose the bird 0.07 ml of that mixture per 100 grams of weight of the bird, once a day for up to three days.  The drench is used in addition to the treatment above, if neccessary.

 

Follow up treatment with vitamins (make sure it contains B1) and probiotics in the water.

FYI, once mixing corrid fresh each day took care of the problem all are good and healthy!
