A few of my hens have severe diarrhea. I have started giving them yogurt. Should I give them Sulmet too? I also have some Duramycin. Is there anything else I can give them?
Thanks.

Well, hmm...is it extremely hot where you are? Have you had alot of rain? Are your chickens penned up in a run? The reason why I'm asking is that, with penned up chickens, they are exposed to their on feces ALOT. Soooo, with this damp weather and heat/humidity, that is the perfect breeding ground for worms and such. But you already wormed them.....

I don't know what else to advise.....I hate to say put them on antibiotics....... but you could try some duramayacin in their drinking water. They could possibly have some type of infection.....

Hope it all works out for you. Wish I could be of more help.
