    I am treating for potential he a mild case of coccidiosis in 4 new checks that were raised outside for the first three weeks before they came to me a few days ago. They have been on corid for three days now, and one just the last day or so has been looking a little sleepy, and maybe eating a little bit less. Gave a little karo water tonight, then back to corid water. I didn't mix them. Can I put mealworms in yogurt and go ahead and give it to chicks? Or wait on yogurt until after treatment? Thanks!

    Plain yogurt for probiotics in small amounts 2-3 times a week is good with Corid.

    Thank you so much for your reply! I had been advised by a friend (who works with a lot of different animals, but does not work much with chickens) to probably wait until after, but I will give them a little in the morning with mealworms & see what happens! Also, don't you think I could go ahead & try pedialyte water during corid also? (Will not mix in the same container, of course.) I know I can't use my Durvet vitamins & electrolytes, but I just want to give the little guy something. And I don't know that the Karo water did much.? I have more experience with the benefits of pedialyte. Will switch back to Durvet v&e when we are off meds mid-day wednesday. Any thoughts or advice? He still goes crazy for mealworms (live), but I'm afraid to overfeed him because idk if he's getting much grit.
