    I took my dog (who loves to eat chicken poop) to his annual check up and he tested positive for coccidia. So, we are treating him with meds, but now I am wondering about our chickens. We have a small flock of free range chickens and I haven't noticed any unusual stools. No one is acting weird...

    Do I need to treat my whole flock? And if so, what is the best med to use?

    Chickens cant get coccidiosis from other animals and vise versa. I wrote an article on coccidiosis if you have any other questions check there. Its in my signature.
