    I had 3 baby chicks and 4 keets. 2 of my chicks got coccidiosis 1 passed away within hours of realizing it was sick. The other fought through the night and had a rough first day of medication but today she/he has been very alert, eating and drinking decent for being sick, and having normal looking stools. I had posted asked for help when I first discovered they were sick. My big question now is how long do I need to quarantine the one that I know had it? I should add that I have now started feeding everyone medicated food and have added corid to all their water. Also do I need to treat my chickens outside?

    I have tried googling it and found lots of articles on how to treat it and how to use the corid but nothing on how long to keep them apart.
