    My chiks have coccidiosis and have been fine. A couple have passed that were perfectly lively this morning. It's late and tractor supply is closed I don't have time to wait and go in the morning. Are there any possible substitutes or do they sell corid at any chain stores like walmart? I can't find my corid anywhere. Please help fast
    Thank you so much in advance

    How are your chickens this morning? Getting fluids into them to prevent dehydration is important. Some oldtimers have recommended feeding buttermilk or even sour cream to coat the digestive tract and give probiotics. Corid powder or liquid are good to keep onhand in case of an out break of coccidosis, or to give a preventative dose after there has been an outbreak. They need to be encouraged to drink enough of the Corid to help. Let us know how they are doing, and I hope that you will not lose any more.
