    Can anyone tell me the proper dose for Corid powder 20%. The package I have is not labeled for poultry, just calves. I have searched a little on here but so far I have only found to treat with Corid for coccidiosis but no dosing info. I will keep searching, but would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. I use 1 gallon waterers if that helps.

    Gee, I wish I could help-I only know the dosing for the Corid liquid.
    Hope someone comes along that can help you.

    As a note. I used 1/8th teaspoon (1/2 of 1/4 teaspoon) Per Quart (Mason Jar) for 7 days on my bird.

    Hope this helps someone !

    Thank you, I searched Google and found nothing. Except this thread and others like it on different sites but none had any answers. My only internet is on my phone so its not the easyist to browse and I didn't realize this site even had a search bar. I will mix it for them tomorrow on the lite side since none are acting sick and it is just a preventative measure after losing one chicken to an unknown cause.

    Dosage Level Mixing Directions for Poultry:
    0.024% Dissolve 8 ounces of AMPROL 128 20% Soluble Powder in about five gallons of water in a 50-gallon medication barrel. Stir, then add water to the 50 gallon mark. Stir thoroughly.
    0.012% Follow same directions as above but use 4 ounces of AMPROL 128 20% Soluble Powder.
    0.006% Follow same directions as above but use 2 ounces of AMPROL 128 20% Soluble Powder.

    Facts
    • One pack = 10 oz. (283.5 grams)
    • One ounce = 28.35 grams
    • One ounce of powder = ~3.5 tablespoons
    • 200mg amprolium per 1 gram
    • 200mg x 28.35 = 5670mg in 3.5 tablespoons of powder.
    • There are 10.5 teaspoons in 3.5 tablespoons
    • There are 21 1/2 teaspoons in 10.5 teaspoons
    • 5670mg divided by 21 1/2 teaspoons = ~270mg per 1/2 teaspoon
    • There are two 1/4 teaspoons per 1/2 teaspoon
    • 270 mg divided by 2 = 135mg per 1/4 teaspoon

    My twisted math for the .024% level
    If 8 ounces (28.35g x 8 = 226.8 grams) are needed for 50 gallons, then 1/50 of that is needed for 1 gallon, right? So that would be 226.8 grams divided by 50 = 4.536 grams per gallon. (doing this as I type, so correct me if I'm wrong, please!)

    Bottom line, 1 teaspoon (540mg) of powder is equal to 5.625ml of liquid and 1/2 teaspoon powder (270mg) is equal to 2.8125ml liquid.

    1/2 teaspoon of 20% powder = 2.8125ml of 9.6% liquid - Both have 270mg of amprolium.
    3/4 teaspoon of 20% powder = 4.21875ml of 9.6% liquid - Both have 405mg of amprolium.
    1 teaspoon of 20% powder = 5.625ml of 9.6% liquid - Both have 540mg of amprolium.
    1.5 teaspoons of 20% powder =8.4375ml of 9.6% liquid - Both have 810mg of amprolium.
    1.75 teaspoons of 20% powder = 9.84375ml of 9.6% liquid - Both have 945mg of amprolium.
    2 teaspoons of 20% powder = 11.25ml of 9.6% liquid - Both have 1080mg of amprolium.
