    Can I give amprolium to my laying hens? I thought I could but read a sheet somewhere that said not to give it to the laying hens. If not, is there something else I can treat them with?

    If they do indeed have cocci, I would treat them with Sulmet.

    I would give the amprolium rather than sulmet
    as it is not as effective and give the same problem with eating the aggs

    so you can do this instead and it is very good

    2 qts of crumbles
    3 tbsp of cayanne pepper
    mix good and do not give any other feed
    feed this for two weeks and it will straighten them up
    then put them on the cayanne pepper at the rate if
    2 qts dry crumbles
    2 tbsp of cayanne pepper for life
    they will be
    both given pepper for coccidiosis and worms

    it is very effective and you can eat the eggs

    also give the wet mash probiotic
    1 qt dru crumbles
    2 qts milk any kind
    1/2 cup of yoguart and will be fed so that they each get 2-3 tbsp of wet mash
    what they will eat in 20-30 minutes
    then clean up wet feeder and restore dry crumbles

    feed this once a day for three times a week then once a week for life

    thus it will make healthy eggs
