    My GC has had this diarrhea for too long now she is starting to lose weight. She stopped laying a few weeks ago when the weather changed. I treated all three of my birds with safeguard between .5 and 1ml per day for 4 days. Started them all on durvet perf poultry all of this week but now she is just pooping more.[​IMG]
    Her weight loss is getting me worried she was 5lbs two months ago now down to 4lbs last time I checked. Going to weigh her today.
    Now she has started molting as well, I did not know that when I gave them the safeguard because a lot of her feathers had been pulled out by a rooster.

    Seems to be Cocci - related - is Corid safe to use during the molt?

    Well, it depends on the dosage you are giving her. If your chicken is pooping that much take her to the vet.

    Yes, you can run a course of Corid during a molt. You might also have a fecal sample tested by a vet if at all possible.
