    I have 5 chicks on Cocid and I'd like to give them Durvet vitamin & electrolytes supplement. Its powdered-8oz bag. I was wondering if someone would like to share how they give their chicks this supplement without mixing it into the water-assuming it shouldn't be mixed into the water because the water has the Cocid meds in it. Thanks.

    Do not give them vitamins at the same time; Corrid blocks thiamine and the vitamins have that in it, which will reduce the effectiveness of the the Corrid. Wait until they're off the Corrid.

    Quote:+1 absolutely. Wait until the Corid is finished.
