Quote:The amounts that Eggcessive and Dawg said *are* correct. FYI, the directions on the bottle are for cattle and poultry get twice that.

Here are the FDA recommendations directions for Corid and Amprol for poultry:
http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/animaldrugsatfda/details.cfm?dn=013-149
"Chickens
Indications: For the treatment of coccidiosis.
Amount: Administer at the 0.012 percent level in drinking water as soon as coccidiosis is diagnosed and continue for 3 to 5 days (in severe outbreaks, give amprolium at the 0.024 percent level); continue with 0.006 percent amprolium-medicated water for an additional 1 to 2 weeks."


Here are the instructions for making it:
Source: http://www.asp-inc.com/products/documents/prodinfo/a/amp96.pdf
"To prepare 50 gallons of medicated water:
Dosage Level Mixing Directions

0.024% Add one pint (16 fluid ounces) of 9.6% Solution AMPROL to about five gallons of water in a 50-gallon medication barrel. Stir, then add water to the 50 gallon mark. Stir thoroughly."

Now for the math lesson...
  • To make it easy you should calculate the number of ml in 16 ounces which is 473.176ml.
  • Then you divide 473.176ml by 50 gallons which equals 9.46352ml per gallon
  • Then round up to 9.5ml and two teaspoons is close, so either can be used.

The .006% amount is 2.37ml or 1/2 teaspoon.
