    I've got two sick 4 month-ish pullets inside. I suspect cocci. They are on Corid and I've been watering down medicated feed. But I am looking for something with high nutrition that is basically liquid, as they aren't eating at all. Any suggestions? I was thinking purred boiled egg or yogurt watered down, or would something like Odwalla or V8 be good as well? Thanks for your help!!

    If it were me, I would make a mixture of boiled egg (or even raw egg), applesauce, probiotics, and medicated feed, and give it to them. If they weren't on Corid, I would give them vitamins/electrolytes, but vitamins can interfer with the affect of Corid on chickens, so that shouldn't be done.

    Anyway, good luck! I had a 7-month old pullet that had Coccidiosis, but after 5-7 days on Corid, she was healthy again. [​IMG]
