    Quote:I believe the recommended meds for coccidosis are Sulmet or Corid. I do not know details. Hope someone with more knowledge will come on and help.

    Good luck & I hope your chickens are OK.

    Sulmet will work. Most people on BYC say (that I have read) that Corid is easier on their systems than Sulmet. But Sulmet cures more kinds of cocci than Corid.

    I have used Corid several times. Twice I have had to retreat after a few days when the bloody poo came back.

    You are fine.

    Some birds might not die from it but they are in abdominal pain - also they may become unthrifty for the rest of their lives, affecting egg production and future health.
