    well, i bought a big bottle of this from the feed store in hopes that it will help and prevent whatever has been killing them off. what dosage should i use and how? i am really confused because the feed store guy was practically muttering and i couldnt understand him at all.

    what are the synptoms for your chickens
    do they definetly have coccidiosis
    most feed store pople don't really know any more than a person earning a living selling products so he can't be used as authority

    you need to understand the symptoms for usin corid is for coccidiosis
    as a amproylium product it is the best for coccidiosis

    usually in a bad epedemic condition you use 2 tsp per gallon for 5-7 days
    generally for 5 days then drop to 1 tsp per gallon
    this was prescribed by a vet in SC when I lived there
    it worked well
    but chickes were un thrifty and hoved up and only drinking water and squirting liquids
    bloody droppings
    and only had two days to live
    are your chickens like that?

    you need to feed the natural probiotic recipe for the chickens wehter they have coccidiosis or not
    email me PM and I will give you that recipe to better heaslth for your chickens

    also goats you need to go on goat forum to find out about using it in goats for coccidiosis
    Join and ask these goat people

    well, there are lots of goat people here who might know [​IMG]
    this paticular feed store guy is very knowledgeable but he has had a stroke and cant talk very well.
    i really think what my chickens have/had is coccidiosis.
