    Can you give turkeys corid and antibiotcs in yhe same water?

    I have 3 poults and I've seen bloody poop, so I started giving them corid. But 2 of them are sneezing a lot, have discharge coming from their nose so I'm thinking a respiratory infection. Can I also add antibiotics to their water with the corid? Thanks!
