    My chickens got coccidia and I treated with cocid in their drinking water. We have a flock that is 5-6 months and a flock that is only 2-3 months the younger were the only ones that got sick but I gave everyone meds. How long after giving them the medication until it is safe to butcher?

    The chickens only got the meds for 5 days about 2 weeks ago then they got it one or two days last week (we introduced new hens, I wanted to play it safe)

    (p.s. if there is already a thread on this topic, sorry, can you direct me to it?)

    The meat birds thread will have more information on this, for sure! Best of luck!
