    I saw this poop this morning in the coop. None of the chickens are acting sick but I am concerned! We have 6 chickens and I am not sure which one this is from. If this is coccidiosis where do I get the treatment and how much do I give? I am new to chicken keeping. Would I be able to get the treatment at a feed store?[​IMG]

    Treatment would be Corid (or Amprol, both are amprolium), which you'll find in the cattle section of Tractor Supply.

    Powder dose is 1.5 teaspoons per gall for 5-7 days, then 1/3 teaspoon for seven days.
    *or*
    Liquid dose is 2 teaspoons per gallon or 5-7 days, then 1/2 teaspoon for seven days.

    This is what you should look for

    Make fresh daily and it should be their only source of drinking water.
