    I have 8 baby chicks that I believe have Cocci... but the 5 day treatment written on the Corid bottle is for calves.. How much do I give chicks that don't even weigh a pound yet??

    The dosage for chickens is 2 teaspoons per gallon of water. I believe you'd be safe using 1-2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid in the water. Hopefully someone else will come along who can clarify further [​IMG]

    I just gave them a 1/2 teaspon in half a gallon of water before I read this.. They are only a week and a half old & I was afraid of overdosing them. lol. Thank you:)
