    Found two deposits of this watery poop. The liquid was tinged red. Is this coccidia?

    I'm not seeing the red ... maybe it's just the photo. But that just looks like a big watery poo to me, heh.

    Could be,purchase Corid(amprolium)or might be called Amprol(amprolium)depending on where you live. Dose for Corid/Amprol 9.6% liquid is 2 tsp per gallon of water,dose for Corid 20% powder is 1-1.5 tsp per gallon of water. Treat ALL birds for 5-7 days,do not give vitamins during treatment as they interfere with the ability of the coccidiostat to work,give vitamins after treatment is complete.
