    Quote:If Coxoid is the same as our Corrid I would if it were my chicks and were having problems. The medicated chick starter would be given at the start so I would think you could use the Corrid but in truth I have no experience there.

    I wouldn't treat them unless they are sick. The coccida medicine is toxic and can be harmful if given wrong.
