    There are lots of posts about using sulmet and what the dosage is, but does anyone go by the label and drop the dose down from 2 Tbs per gallon for the first 2 days, to 1 Tbs per gal the last 4 days? Please tell me how you use sulmet. For coccidiosis in chickens.

    I haven't done it for awhile but it seems the dose was the same but the length varied. Anyway, don't listen to me, follow the directions. I don't think it would hurt to treat for the worse case scenario and go the full week. Make a fresh batch each morning. I notice the water turns red after about 24 hours because I guess it's unstable after that period of time once mixed with water (freaked me out the first time I saw it).
