    I my batch of six new little girls, at least two are having foamy brown poops, and one it's looking kinda messy. At this age its hard to tell them apart, and I'm having trouble figuring out who's got the foamy poops. Can I treat the whole lot of them all at once or will that hurt ones who may not be sick?

    The treatment for coccidiosis is amprolium which is a thiamine blocker and nothing else so you can treat them all with no concerns. You will want to give B vitamins AFTER the treatment is complete.

    When I've had cocci issues, I medicate the whole batch. I add the Corid to the water and they all get a good dose. Doesn't hurt the ones that aren't effected, and my theory is if one's susceptible, they all have a chance of coming down with it.
