Feed store would be less expensive. I think it is found in the horse section of the farm stores(at least at Wilco it is). Not sure on dosing but treat a gallon of water and only let them have access to that water only. Change the water everyday. I think you treat for 7 or 10 days. But need to start quickly.

Based on your avatar, I have seen your ad on CL about Starscream. Great name. Hope you can get them treated. Good Luck

Coccidia can be the problem...also worms. When were they last wormed....how old are your birds? id treat with Corid and also some liquid Safeguard for goats. You can use both in this situation. Corid is often found in the cattle or swine meds in either a powder or liquid. Label is white with red.
