Hello All!

I am both a peafowl and chicken flock owner. I always have 4 in 1, all in one, or 5 in 1 on hand for my peafowl due to weak immune system and emergencies. These medications listed contain several active ingredients that cure multiple things at once. For example: All in one cures Coccidiosis with Amprolium, Canker with Ronidazol, worms with Levamisol (except Tape worms) Tylan for respiratory, and it includes probiotics. So if I have a peachick that is sick and I give them this, it can cure multiple things going on in the bird ensuring a quicker recovery.
In my experience, it is great for treating cocci.
This got me thinking. Can chickens use this medication? I have searched all around and it doesn't seem to be popular among many poultry owners.
So, can anyone enlighten me on the usage of this medication?
If so, let me know your dosage and how successful it is
If you choose not to use it, let me know why you choose not to use the medication.
Thank you
Blessings!

I have never heard of these all in one meds.
Can you share a picture of it or the brand name so I can look it up please.

@casportpony do you know these?

Thanks.
I can't say I have ever seen anyone use this for chickens before.
Interesting.
I personally don't think it is a good idea to medicate for something you don't for sure have.

Right I absolutely agree. Whenever my peafowl are showing signs of cocci or any protozoan infection, I use these medications to cure the cocci and kill off the worms that caused the infection. Using this product for a bird that is displaying distress whithout confirmation of the cause is not recomended. For example: throwing the medicaiton on a random sick bird hopeing it works.

I would not use a compound medication for treating anything. Using an antibiotic such as tylosin combined with a drug for protozoa and worms would be a bad idea. First of all, you would could have the organisms develop resistant strains, and a needless strain on the body if the chicken does not have the infection the drug for which it is to treat.
There are single drugs to treat worms, coccidiosis, canker (histomoniasis,) and bacterial infections. Look at symptoms, decide on a diagnosis, get fecal tests if possible, but treat for one thing at a time.
It seems to me that the nuclear affect against illness is not necessary or practical. Just my opinion.
