    fecal test 2 weeks ago showed negative. saw symptoms so I took another sample in and the cocci is back. I used 1/2 iz if ?Sulfadimethoxine in gal of water for 5 days as instructed but vet was unsure of strength for chickens. what dose do any of you suggest??? Will be starting it up again today thought maybe it needs to be stronger.[​IMG]
