    I think my three month old hens have it. Lathargic, fluffed up bloody stool. Treating with Corid. I used a bucket with nipples. Two gallons. Four tablespoons. Do I need to change the water daily? Or is this enough to leave for one week? Anything else I should do? HELP?

    Change the water every day, even when using nipple waterers. I don't actually know why you do that, but that's what I've read and done before.

    You may want to change the dosage you are giving them. The correct dosage for the liquid Corid is 2 teaspoons per gallon of water, instead of two tablespoons.

    You need to make it up fresh every day because it looses strength and efficacy over time. You definitely do not want it sitting for a full week.
