    Well I keep corid vit/mineral supplement wormer and diatomatius earth and put it on all of my birds about once a month the Diatomatius earth to clean that up not all of it but I recommend to keep corid and the vit/mineral supplement on hand and maybe wormer depending on how often u find worms in ur birds

    Roada Red,
    What is corid? Is it a name brand? I didn't think you needed a wormer unless your birds were raised on the ground. I have heard of using DE.

    Thank You,

    Roada Red,
    Okay I'm new at this and I've never heard of coccidiosis. It sounds like some type of inflammation or infection. How do you know when your birds have this?

    Thank You,

    Roada Red,
    Some folks have quails in aviaries or in hutches that have access to grass and dirt. Mine will be in pens above the ground (a few feet high), so I was wondering if they still can get worms?

    Thank You,
    SuseyQ
