    I have heard (or read) other people say that it is sometimes sold in different concentrations. I have never seen it in any other concentration. I bought mine locally, so i don't know about the shipping question. Hopefully someone will know.

    I used Corid for my chicks, and it worked right away, and they didn't seem to have suffered any ill effects. I have heard that Sulmet can cause more bleeding. I don't really know. Again, to the experts.

    If i find someone who ships Corid overnight, i'll post it here.

    Good luck.

    We only use Sulmet at a rate of 1 cap full per quart of water from day one until they are 3 weeks old and have never had a problem. We also run Sulmet through our older chickens water once a month at a rate of 2 cap fulls per 1 gallon of water.

    Well I sent my mom on a search for it at TSC or Orschlyns after work, so all should be good.
    Thanks though, and I think I saw some powdered corid well doing my searches, but just once.
