    I was told by a vet to use Corid for my laying hens for cocci because we can continue to use the eggs. My problem is it doesn't have chicken dosage on it and the vet is gone for the day. Does anyone know the dosage? it is 9.6% Oral Solution.

    Quote:Dosage is 9.5cc per gallon of water for 5 days, mix a new batch daily. Your vet is correct, no withdrawal.

    [​IMG] I found this stuff at my local feed store. Can I use this on my chickens? If so how much do I give them and do I hold the eggs?

    Welcome to BYC!

    What do you want to use it for? I think it only treats bacterial infections of the intestines. If you want to treat coccidiosis you need amprolium (Corid, Amprol, AmproMed, etc), a sulfa drug (Sulmet, SMZ-Med 454, Albon, Di-Methox, etc), or Baycox (toltrazuril).

    Anyway, the correct Corid dose is:
    Treatment20% Powder9.6% Liquid
    For 3-5 days1.5 teaspoons per gallon2 teaspoons per gallon
    then for 7-14 days1/3 teaspoon per gallon1/2 teaspoon per gallon
    When treating coccidisosis in my own birds I use the 0.024% severe outbreak dose for 5 days, then the 0.006% amount for 7-14 days. Since I use the liquid, I use 2 teaspoons per gallon for five days, then 1/2 teaspoon for 7-14 days.

    The FDA, FARAD, and the mfg's say this:
    "Administer at 0.012% in drinking water as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for 3 days to 5 days (in severe outbreaks, give 0.024%); continue with 0.006%
    amprolium medicated water for an additional 1 week to 2 weeks. No other source of drinking water should be available to the birds during this time."

    So what does that mean?

    Percentage20% Powder9.6% Liquid
    0.024%1.5 teaspoons per gallon2 teaspoons per gallon
    0.012%3/4 teaspoon per gallon1 teaspoon per gallon
    0.006%1/3 teaspoon per gallon1/2 teaspoon per gallon

    to use Corid the amount is
    9.5 cc= approximately 2 tsp of corrid to gallon of water.
    yes this is what to do
    I gave this for sulmet or corid

    using corid 9.6 solution= 2 tsp per gallon of water
    Now what to do and what to feed after medicating for coccidiosis

    to make sure they eat the medicated wet mash do this first ans second day of treating and medication in the water 7 days
    also I use the wet mash with sulmet or corid
    2 tbsp of dry crumbles(chicken mash)
    4 tbsp of water
    1 tsp of sulmet add to the water

    if using corid
    2 tbsp of dry mash
    4 tbsp of water
    add 2 tsp of corid to the water
    feed 2 tsp per chicken for a feeding
    feed this two mornings to get the medication in the birds
    also at same time put the corid or sulmet in the drinking water for 7 days

    either the corid amproylium or the sulmet will work but now you have a difficient gut problem with the E.coli
    and it needs to have the Vitamin E put in the wet mash probiotic to help the E.coli gut problem
    do this

    now the
    natural probiotic recipe is is:
    1 qt of dry crumbles
    2 qts of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good

    and add 1- 1000 mg of Vit E by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chick fed this wet mash
    putting it in the wet mash
    this for each chick your treating
    so for each chick use 2 tsp of mixture and 1-1000 mg of Vit E
    twice a day for them till the manure is solid

    and feed
    chicks 2 tsp full and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles

    do this twice a day for a week
    till the chicks manure is right
    then quit the Vit E and selinium make just the wet mash probiotic
    then once a week for life

    All the while after mdicating the birds use
    2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated
    they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
    then three days aweek after they are over coccidiosis
