    When do I switch them back to medicated feed? Or to I keep them on the non medicated from now on?

    I can only get medicated feed so they eat that while on Corid if I have to treat anyone, which I really haven't had to do in awhile. You can do either way and it won't matter. You'll still have to watch for signs of cocci relapse, on medicated or non-medicated.

    How long do you have to watch for a relapse? The rest of their lives or the next few months.

    Basically, until they are around 12-13 weeks old or so. After that, you rarely see cocci because by that age, most have developed a good immunity to whatever oocysts are in your soil.
