    After much super sleuthing, I figured out my ailing hen has coccidiosis. I have mixed up the Corid in the water and am treating the whole flock. She will eat some wet oatmeal if I offer it to her. Yesterday, I hand syringed water into her several times before I got the poop that flagged the cocci. I have made up a drench and tried to get some into her this morning. I think only about 1/2 the dose made it in. Today is much cooler....yesterday was brutally hot and when she panted, I could syringe her mouth. Way easier! How often can you dose with the drench during the day?? Don't want to overdo.....Thanks!

    ETA: Also, I saw that there was no withdrawal period for Corid? Double checking the accuracy on that.....:)

    If she will eat the oatmeal that is great. Sick chickens will sometimes eat wet foods. See if you can mix a little egg with the oatmeal to give her more protein.

    There is no withdrawal with Corid.

    Corid dosage is 1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or 2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon.
    Give for 5-7 days - make sure this is the ONLY water available during that time period. Mix a fresh batch at least once a day.

    After your flock finishes treatment offer some poultry vitamins and probiotics/plain yogurt.


    Looks like if you are going to direct dose her go by this formula. Corid is very mild and gentle so if you go over slightly it won't harm her. Of course you can ask Kathy (@casportpony ) if need be. She is great with the medicine formulas.

    """""Tube the Corid water to her. Her daily dose should be no less than 0.02 ml of undiltued Corid per 100 grams.

    Thank you! I had done some research on the site and did do the 1 1/2 tsp/gal of water...in both waterers. One is in the run, the other in the coop. The mostly use the outdoor one. I mixed the oatmeal w/the drench formula, and just now she took the whole amount....a huge improvement from yesterday! I will definitely add egg to the next batch in several hours.
