    Hello frnds.
    I have a flock of 12 birds out of which a pullet seems a little lethargic.
    She is not so active and its feathers seem a little puffy.
    I had given them amprolium 3 weeks back and again today.
    She eats and drinks fine also I assume that she is down at the pecking order.
    Attaching a pic of hers.
    Kindly advice thanking you people in advance.

    Hi @Salman93 What does her poop look like?

    You mention that you gave Amprolium (Corid?) 3wks back, then again yesterday. When you originally gave this - what dosage and for how long?

    It may be a good idea to re-treat for Coccidiosis - give the Amprolium for 5-7days as the only source of drinking water at 1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or 2teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon.

    If she is lowest in pecking order - watch to see that she is eating/drinking well. For 12birds, sometimes having more than 1 feeding station can help too. Some birds are more timid and are bullied/kept from food. Once you finish treatment, offer her some poultry vitamins and a little yogurt/probiotics for a couple of days.

    Keep us posted.

    I put 1gm of amprolium in 1.25lt water. I started giving it, when they were a month old. I continue it for 3-4 days.
    She looks fine when outside but as soon as she enters the coop. She acts lazy.
    While free ranging, she is fine.
    I think that she is being bullied by the others.
