    We have got a cocci problem, [​IMG] Went to get corid yesterday but the feed store was CLOSED.

    Today my birds have to wait until somone gets home from work. That would be around 5:00. [​IMG]

    but, my dad is having me call to ask if they actually have it. I've never used corid before, and I

    need to know exactly what it is. Is it for cattle? for chickens? What should I ask for when I call?

    I don't want to confuse them, and make a fool of myself..hehe.. Thankyou very much.

    Cori is usually found in the cattle section.....but there are directions for poultry on the bottle too....
    Every time I have called and asked stores for it...they say "we don't sell that here" and when I go there 20 min later...I find it on the very bottom shelf in the cattle section.....

    So NEVER trust them.....Best bet is to go there yourself and look, cause most likely they will say they have no idea....
    I would get someone to drive you to town and look...Cocci is NOT something you want to put off treating...they can die really fast if you wait to long !!!!


    Best Wishes,

    Corid is also known as "amprolium." It might be best to use either name when calling around. Then again....they probably still dont know what it is.

    If you're purchasing the 9.6% liquid solution; dosage is 9.5cc's per gallon of water for 5-7 days. Dont add anything else into the mixture and it must be their sole source of treated water to drink. Ensure all your birds drink the mixture.
