Will hens who have suffered from Coccidia as pullets still be good egg layers?
They can be- it depends on the amount of damage done (damage has been done when we realize they are ill).
I have dealt with it several times and got plenty of eggs. But also lost a chicken or two. Of course I started treatment pretty quickly.
Definitely it is supposed to reduce their productivity according to the literature I have read. But how much???? I don't know and it isn't enough for me to notice personally.
I wouldn't cull anyone if I were you on that assumption that they will have lower productivity.
Thanks. It is my first hatch of Thai so I was wondering if I should cull or not. She was sick enough to notice as a young pullet but now they are around 5+ months and she looks and acts fine just a little smaller than the others.
I have a liquid cocci treatment from the vet but can't remember the name right now. What do you use for treatment of cocci?
I use Corid (amprolium).
