    Does anyone know how to dose this for 3 week old chickens ?
    I called the company that made it and they will not help me
    because it is designed for calfs not chickens.
    I tried to do the math and i think it is about 4 to 4.5 ml per gallon of water
    but I'm not sure thats right. This is 9.6% solution and i think
    the powder version is 20%. I need to figure this out ASAP.
    I have blood in some chicks stool and I'm pretty sure thats coccida


    the dosage for drinking water treatment for 5 days, on the bottle, is 16oz per 100 gallons .

    any help is appreciated

    think i found it here on byc

    The treatment I have read about that is said to be the best is to separate your chickens and then use Corid 9.6% liquid solution. The dosage is 9.5cc to a gallon of water for five days. And there is no withdrawal period. You do need to make a fresh batch every day, and keep him/her away from all the other chickens. Corid takes care of all 9 cocci that chickens could get.

    has anyone used this formula

    Yes that is the correct mixing instructions for any age chicken. The maximum (severe) dosage should be used. They need to drink a normal amount of the water daily to get the right dosage. You can also use a follow-up dosage afterward. After treatment probiotics and vitamins should be given for several days. Here is a chart that Casportpony has made up.

    You will want to treat all your chickens not just the one that has it. Cocci is extremely contagious so others may have it but don't show signs of it yet. Also, if they don't have it the treatment is still safe for them too.

    There are 6 chicks in this brooder and they are all getting the corid from the waterer.
    Thanks for the chart and the help.

    I think many get confused because the instructions on the bottle are for cattle, and the treatment dose for cattle is half of what it is for chickens.

    is it ok to divide the 9.6cc by 4 to mix a quart of water ? There are only 6 chicks in the brooder and from what i have read, you need to make a fresh batch every day.
    thats a big waste of meds. no way will 6 chicks of 3 weeks of age drink a gallon of medicated water a day. Is mixing 2.37cc of 9.6% corid liquid into 1 quart of water
    ok as a correct dose. I still see bright red stool today. This is day 2 of the 9.6% corid medicine.

    Sure, but I just use 1/2 teaspoonful or 2.5 ml per quart or liter of water.
