    So just a question are cx extra supseptable to cocci? I let my chicks out all 50 and now the 26 cx are dropping like flys I think its cossi when I get a chance I'm gonna buy some corid 9.6 can I/ should I treat all the remaining cx? Just FYI the other chicks are a bit older ruffly two months old I believe and the cx are closer to 3 weeks to a month but none had gone outside till like four to five days ago

    I wouldn't say that they are more susceptible than other birds. The Cornish X I've raised were healthy and active and I had no diseases in them. I have had Coccidiosis once or twice in the past in my bantams but my Cornish X were fine.

    If your Cornish X appear to have Coccidiosis or are housed with birds that have Coccidiosis, I suggest treating them with the Corid. It will not hurt them and will help prevent/treat the disease.

    I've feed them medicated feed since I got them so I'm a bit surprised this is happening I've never had any birds that jd this issue none of the ones they are housed with have it either so
    I'm just confused

    The dose of Corid in medicated feed is very minimal, so this comes up all the time. You should proceed with a full dose for the entire flock. Search this site for dosing information.

    The 9.6% Corid liquid dose I use is 10ml (2 teaspoons) per gallon for 5 days, then 2.5ml (1/2 teaspoon) per gallon for 7 days. Make fresh daily.

    The 20% Corid powder dose I use is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 5 days, then 1/2 teaspoon for 7 days. Make fresh daily.

    Medicated water must be their only source of water (no creeks, puddles ponds, etc.)

    Is there a special cleaning method like I normally change the bedding and replace it every few days should I be spraying with disenfectent now befor putting new stuff down? Should I refrain from taking them outside during treatment. To the poo pictures I switched the bedding today so none left
