    Last end of summer I had to buy corid to treat my chicks.
    The feed store didn't have small bottles so maybe I used less than 5%.
    In April I am getting new chicks and was wondering if the corid I have Can be used in case I need to treat them too.
    Also what is the best way to store liquid corid. I had mine in an unheated basement and we are in Chicago. My guess is it could have frozen a few times....
    Is it worth keeping and using it?

    It should give on the bottle an expiration date. If it froze it is probably no longer good. On the insert it says store between 41 and 77 degrees, with brief drops to 40 allowed. Once its diluted with water it has a 3 day expiration.

    Storage instructions are the same for all liquid formulas, it was not intended as a dosing guide.

    Thank you 1muttsfan and Kathy,
    It looks like I will have to throw the bottle away as I am pretty sure the liquid froze.
    I should have remembered to check before letting it in such a cold area...

    Okay, just wanted people to know that they shouldn't follow the dosing info.
