    I have noticed that they last about a week or two.

    I fed my oatmeal. Totally got rid of it. Just mix with medicated starter feed.

    Keep the poo cleaned off and put olive oil on their butts also.

    I have a small food processor that I use. Most tell you to use antibiotics and such but if you catch it before it gets bad, this will work in most cases. Make sure to mix with their food because they love it and will eat it instead of the starter food. I kept it mixed with their food for about 2-3 weeks just to make sure it didn't come back.
