The guy I got my peachicks from gave me some sulfamethoxine and said to put it in their water once a week. Does anyone elso do this? How much should I put in? I think he said a pinch of it for a gallon of water. Does this sound right? Thanks!

I would not use it. That stuff is for coccidia. Is your chick on medicated chick starter? Does your chick have coccidia?

The feed bag doesn't say anything, so I'm assuming its not medicated. I'm using Dumor 24%. No, I don't think they have coccidia, but what are the signs that they have it?

The lady I bought my chicks from told me to put corrid in their water to prevent coccidia. I don't put it in every time I fill the water though. Is this a bad idea too?
