In the Brooder
- Jul 19, 2014
I have been doing a lot of research on here and different sites and I have decided to do a 5 day cycle of amprolium on my new chicks instead of giving them medicated feed. The only problem is, well i think its a problem I'm not really sure. The only amprolium my local store had was Corid (which they said was for calves, but would work for poultry as long as the dose was right). They didn't know what the dose was though. So my question is does anyone know what the does for the 5 day treatment would be and has anyone taken this route before? If anyone has done this what are the pros and cons to doing it this way over the medicated feed. Just a little backround the reason I chose not to use the medicated feed was because I was told that the medicated feed is a waste because there isn't enough medication in the feed and I would be better doing the 5 day cycle or nothing. I am new to raising chicks and want to make the correct responsible decision since these animals will be producing food for my family.
