    I just now saw some bloody poop in my brooder pen.

    I went and got the corid after finding out tylan was only respiratory. Now, this is latin to me. It says to use in drinking water at the rate of 16fl oz/100gallons. Okay, I don't see a dern thing about chickens on this bottle, so I'm ignoring this. Can someone tell me what the dosage is based on experience with chickens. Can y'all tell I'm a little fed up? Please help................................

    Tylan is for respitory issues. You need Amprolium also sold as Corid. Tractor Supply should carry it

    I had a devil of a time finding Corid around here; only one out of six feedstores had it, but it works very well.

    I hate cocci, too! Sulmet is okay, but it is harder on the gut than Corid and may actually extend the period of intestinal bleeding; plus, it is not effective against at least one type of cocci, eimeria tenella. So, first, I'd use Corid. If that doesn't knock it out, then I'd use Sulmet as a backup.

    9.6%?

    if it's 9.6%, use 1 to 2 tablespoons to a gallon of water. recommendations go from 4cc, which is just under a tablespoon, to 9 cc.

    if you're using a quart size waterer, that's 3/4 teaspoon to 1 1/2 teaspoons. (i don't want you to have to do math this late at night.)
