    Can you add powdered Corid to a batch of already mixed Save-a-Chick solution???
    I am trying to dose one ill chick and safe guard the other three...trying to get them to drink from two seperate bowls feels like too much to cover my bases.
    ANY advice will be GRATEFULLY appreciated. This chick stole my heart as she plopped from her shell and this is 'killing' me as sure as her ailment is killing her. Help me please. I cannot find any info here...sleep deprevation is not helping...
    I forgot to mention that I have been syringe feeding my ill chick, alternating between Corid and Sav-A-Chick...also gave her a direct drop, po, (by mouth) of VetRx when I first found her lethargic and relatively unresponsive at about 12:30 this morning...immediately starting electrolytes and had to wait until TSC opened this morning because, for the life of me, I cannot find the bag I bought weeks ago! Won't ever make that mistake again!
    The last time I lost a chick I consoled myself by putting 40+ more eggs in the 'bator...! Can you imagine what I could be capable of if I were to lose this little sweet-pea!?!?
    I need an overdose of sanity here! OK, back to syringe and 'Baby'...
    Thank you in advance...

    I would not; it's not supposed to be mixed with anything but water, as I understand it.

    Corid is a thiamine blocker. Save-A-Chick contains thiamine and would be counterproductive treating cocci. I recommend that you treat all your chicks with corid only. No need to give them safeguard if they are under 8 weeks old.

    Safeguard? I haven't given that. I don't even recall what that is...

    You mentioned safe guard in your first post; giving it in a bowl to three other chicks. Safeguard is a wormer.

    I don't think she meant the medication Safeguard. She meant safe guarding them from the bowl of corid water. Maybe?
