    Here I go again, losing more birds... It seems the symptoms are always the same, green and white runny poop. I thought once you survive Cocci, your birds build up a tolerance. But its always the same old repeat of the flare-up.

    there are different types of coccidia, your birds will get accustom to what you have on your soil, but bring in a new bird with a different strain or carry one in on your or someone elses shoes.... there it is again. Are you seeing blood in the poo? If it is just runny green & white it could be illness in the gut, I'd try some fish zole if you can find some right now...... see my thread " what happened to fish zole" here in emergency section.
