    Our chicks are dying one by one. They have blood in their stools. I was told to get corid in their water ASAP. How much per gallon do I put in of Corrid powder 20%.?

    USE the 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water dose if you are seeing blood.

    Mix 1/2 teaspoon of Corid POWDER with 2 teaspoons of water and give each chick a drop straight to the beak.
    Once a day for 3 days straight in addition to the water mixture.

    Ok so im reaching day 7 of my initial severe out break and my question is weather or not I wait a day between my out break treatment and my preventive treatment. I read some where that after the first 7 days i should give there body a day of rest and give them water with electrolytes in it and after 24 hours I should start the second week of treatment for preventive.

    So it would be

    5-7 days of treatment for outbreak at 1 tsp of corid 20%

    1 day of plain water and electrolytes

    5-7 days of treatment for preventive at 1/2 tsp of corid 20%

    And then my babys should be good.

    Am i understanding this right? Or do i have something messed up. I just want to do this right

    I've never waited a day between, not sure where that came from, or the logic.
    Corid starves the coccidia, giving them a day to recover seems illogical to me.
    Usually the 7 days of the severe treatment works, the follow up in severe cases is insurance and to prevent reinfection of a gut that hasn't had time to heal completely yet.
    Maybe I'm wrong, but I see no point in skipping a day. Once you complete treatment you can give some vitamins and probiotics to help the gut.

    Yup I treat All in contact with each other consistently for at least 7 days and make sure that’s the only water available so you know they are getting the treatment
