    Sorry about your predicament. Sounds like the first round of treatment did some good. Hope this second one does the trick. Hang in there. :hugs

    Sometimes for whatever reason certain birds have trouble building imunity to it and it can take several treatments before they finally get over it, frustrating I know, sometimes treating with a severe outbreak dose for seven days then follow that with the maitanance dose for two more weeks works best at least it did for my birds

    I dont have photos yet as i was rushing this morning for work. It was splat poop with red blood. Here are pics i found online what it looks like that im seeing. I woke up this morning, went out to feed and water and i found 3 splats like this. I was devastated. I think i might try Sulmet. I have a large bottle of it and worked great on my goat kids. [​IMG]

    It is impossible to disinfect a coop. Coccidia are in the soil and in the droppings of most chickens to some extent. As they grow, they will usually build up a tolerance to cocci in the soil anywhere from 11-20 weeks of age, unless there is a problem with immunity or a new strain is introduced from other soil. Usually, stirring the bedding often to keep it dry, changing it when it gets really dirty, and then adding new bedding can help. A vet can do a fecal test on several fresh droppings collected, to look for coccidia or worms. Corid (amprollium) used in the water for 7 days is a common treatment for an outbreak. Other medicines used are sulfa antibiotics and toltrazuril, especially in other countries. Symptoms to look for are sleepiness, standing hunched or puffed up, poor appetite, ruffled feathers, or diarrhea with mucus or sometimes blood.
