    I got these two from a npip breeder who won't let anyone on the place. I have had them a week and a half. One has given me bloody poop last night and this morning. Do I need to treat with corrid? They are in with(Stupid I know) my 6 month old RIR. Dosage? Is it 3T to a gallon liquid?

    Edited -- I misread your post. I haven't treated for Cocci so I can't help you, sorry!

    If it is coccidia (and it sounds like it) your RIR should be fine as long as he/she isn't exposed to a lot of bloody poops.

    The correct dose for Corid 9.6% solution is 9.5 CC per gallon of water.
    That equates to approximately 2 tsp per gallon.
    Treatment should be done for 5 days, fresh solution each day.
    With bloody droppings, I would treat.

    Thanks. I was unsure of the dosage especially with two ages. I need to learn this stuff. I have only had chickens since the first of August.
