    I'm treating my chickens for cocci. Should I treat everyone in the same coop including the ducks? Or just the ones with symptoms?

    I'd treat everyone. :)

    What are you using?

    If you suspect cocci you should treat the whole flock. Just because some aren't showing symptoms doesn't mean they don't have it. If you wait until they show signs of cocci it could be too late to treat it effectively.

    Whatever you use to treat it, make sure your dosage is correct. There are some incorrect dosages of corid floating around on the interweb - the best thing is to follow the label instructions, or check on the manufacturer's website.

    Search for any post by Casportpony, and you will find links in her signature to measured dosages of many medications and the math to go along with it.

    MrsBrooke is right. Casportpony is the 'go-to gal' for medicine dosages on BYC.
