    Hi,

    My beautiful 10mos Olive egger is having intestinal shedding for three days and not looking right. I am on day 2 of treating with Corid in case of cocci (I am giving each bird in the flock 0.4 mls by syringe to be safe and putting probiotics in their drinking water.

    I am also thinking I need to treat for worms too. I have a Strike 3 pellet (hygromyacin B) at the house that says to treat for round worms, cecal and capillary worms. Can I mix this at the same time with Corid?

    Instructions say to give one scoop per one pound of feed. But I think that might be the preventive dose. I am trying to figure out if there is a better direct method to administering it to the sick chicken. ( example can I crush it and feed directly and if so how much?). The nearest TSC is an hour away, but if I need to drive there to get safeguard instead I may have to wait until tomorrow.

    Thanks!

    Sorry JJ, I have no advice for you as I have not used any of the products you mentioned but Corid and probiotics. I used corid as a preventative measure so I am unsure how long before you see positive results.

    How is the chick doing at this point...what have you done...if nothing else we will give this post a bump to see if someone more experienced has any ideas what to do.

    I did a second thread on this as suddenly they started popping roundworms. Went with Corid and Safeguard. Strike three is being take off the market and will now require a vets note due to latest fda issuing.
