    Does anyone know if it's safe to use corid and safeguard together at the same time? I've been planning to treat my girls for worms. Don't know if they have any or not but just to make sure. I've been putting it off because one of my girls is molting and I heard something about not using safeguard during molt (can't remember what). But today, I noticed that one of the 9 week old pullets that joined the flock about a week ago has bloody poop. Looks like it just started today and it's definitely not intestinal lining. I'm finding bloody poops in multiple spots all over the run. I'm heading to the feed store tomorrow to grab corid for them but since I'm treating them with that, can I just do both treatments at the same time?

    Do the Corid- Cocci will kill them. At 9 weeks old they should need wormer. I wouldn't worm until they were 4 months old.

    Ok. They are in with the main flock so I was planning to worm all of them together but I will wait. Is there an egg withdraw from corid? I'm treating the entire flock together.

    There is no withdrawal period after using corid, eggs are safe to eat.

    Thanks. I gave them some powdered milk for tonight (they devoured it) and I'll give it to them tomorrow morning too. I can't get to the feed store until tomorrow evening since it's an hour away. I'll start dosing them in their water on Wednesday morning.

    I agree that they might be too young to *need* worming, but to answer your question, Corid and Safeguard *can* be used at the same time.

    I'm glad a few could answer your question.

    I used to wonder about using them together, so I researched it and found that neither lists the other under drug interactions, so I began using them when I wasn't sure what was making my birds sick. Since then I have also chatted with people that have been told by their vets to use both at the same time.

    OK, change of plans. My TSC didn't carry corid :/ I was searching everything for a while and the only thing I could find that even mentioned cocci was this packet of powdered mix. I think it's Durvet sulfadimethoxine soluble powder. Anyone know anything about it? Directions are confusing on the back.
