    I have five 6 week old chicks with cocci. My corid is arriving this afternoon and apparently it doesn't mention dosage for chickens. Can someone tell me what it is for 6 week old chicks? I imagine its the same for all ages.

    Also is it safe to use corks even if they may not have cocci????

    If you are using the powder form, it is 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water. Mix daily for 5 consecutive days. [​IMG]

    It won't hurt them if they don't have cocci, although not recommended if they don't. But when in doubt, use the meds.

    Corid is very safe. If you are getting the liquid 9%, use 2 tsp. per gallon of water mixed fresh daily for 5 days.
