    We have an English Bantam sitting on 9 eggs; today she hatched 2. I've heard that there is a dietary supplement to use in their water. I have medicated chick feed already but not sure about the medicated water??

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The chicks usually gain cocci immunity from the mother hen. If you wish to provide amprolium via the water supply, Corid is pretty simple to administer in that fashion.
