    hello,ive been treating my little hen for cocci with corid.her poo looks 100% better,shes eating ,drinking,roosting,acting totally normal except...shes still a little puffed,her eyes are really heavy (like shes half asleep)and she still sleeps alot.is this normal for just getting over cocci or do you think there might be something else going on?
    thanks for any suggestions...

    There are several strains of cocci. The other drug you could try is Sulmet (the liquid.) Maybe her strain has some resistance to Corid.

    Good luck.

    Maybe she's just a little worn down from the cocci. Some vitamins/electrolites in her drinking water might help perk her up. Maybe some extra protein like a chopped up scrambled egg would help....

    Hope she gets her energy back for you!

    Sulmet is a sulfa antibiotic, so it treats for more than coccidiosis.
