    I am treating 5 chicks with Corid that had cocci. How long do I need to keep them separated from my other chickens to avoid spreading cocci?

    You don't need to keep your chicks separated from adult chickens because the adults have probably already built up a resistance (sort of immunity) to the type of protozoa that infected your chicks with cocci.

    Thanks for the help. I bought my others as chicks in early March so they are a few months old.

    I think you will find opposing opinions on that, and sometimes it is a matter of what is on hand and what can be gotten easily. Sulmet is readily available here, and yes, it works, and works best on severe cases. Personally, I use the Amprolium as in the long run I feel it is the lesser of two evils.
