    Hello,
    I was wanting to treat my birds, mainly as a precaution for coccidiosis. I have seen a couple with light brown colored poop... The warning on the packet says DO NOTadminister to chickens over 16 weeks or turkeys over 24 weeks. Most all of my birds are over that age.. Is it safe to give the this sulfadimethoxine soluble powder to my older birds?????

    I recall another forum with a VET that reccomended it for another ladies birds. Same diagnosis, but I think her's were worse...
