    We just had a (chicken) hen die of what we think is coccidiosis, if this medicine is safe for chickens I'll treat them tomorrow, and am wondering if it is safe and if i should treat my pheasant. This it the medicine.[​IMG]

    Yes, it is safe for chickens. I think the dose is 2 teaspoons per gallon but I'm not sure. Eggcessive worked out the exact dose on another thread. I'll see if I can find it.
