    I am giving them Corid but it does not tell how long before we can use eggs.
    Any help?

    Most folks wait two weeks. It's very unusual for a chicken that age to develop cocci.....Normally it affects chickens under 17 weeks of age. (The young-uns.) Are you sure that's what they've got? Have they had lots of blood in the stool?
