Hello,
I've never had any bloody poop until last week when I introduced 2 new birds to the flock. Within 2 days I started noticing the bloody poop and one of the new ones was acting especially sick. I started treating them when I noticed as I already had Corid on hand from treating the flock a few months ago (as a preventative) and used 2 teaspoons per gallon of liquid Corid. I had read that the bloody poop would clear up within a day or 2 but a week later I am still getting bloody poops. Do they not have coccidiosis? What else could be causing this bloody poop? They haven't lost their appetite and 4 of the 7 act completely normal, the other 3 will still eat and drink and walk/scratch around but they will also spend a good portion of the day puffed up and eyes closed. Would greatly appreciate any help, very concerned and confused.

Bloody poops can also be caused by internal parasites. I would get a fecal from your local vet. They aren't very expensive and even if they don't usually see chickens they will usually do a fecal test for cocci and worms. Are you giving any sort of vitamins? That can cancel out the Amprolium.

I have a lot of vets near me and I've called all of them and only one was willing to test the chicken poop and it would be $50 to do, a fecal test by all means would be great for knowing what they have but I would rather avoid the cost, is there anything for worms that is basically an all in one so I don't have to target a specific worm? I am not giving them any sort of vitamins that I know of.

I understand where you are coming from. It is not advisable to treat without knowing what you are treating for, however I understand that this is often necessary. You can use Safe-Guard. I believe the liquid dose is to be given orally to each chicken at 1/4 ml per pound or at about 1.25 ml for a 5 pound chicken. Don't put it in the water.

How long do I do it for and what is the withdraw period?

You can do 2 doses. One and then another one 10 days later. 14 day withdraw after the 2nd dose, so a total of 24 days. Don't feed the eggs back to them. You'll have to toss them.
