    Hi there, I just wrote this recipe down for future refrence! Now none of my chicks or chickens are sick so for learning sake could you please post a thread for this topic for us newbies? [​IMG] Also I would like to know where to find the signs and symptoms for this? How would a healthy group of birds get this if no new birds are carried in? Forgive my ignorance please!
    Hi, I am Debbie!

    GLENDA HEYWOOD
    i FED THIS FOR CHICKS FO MANY MANY YEARS AND FOUND IT WORKED FINE.
    If you keep having coccidisis problems with chicks
    switch to corid or 7days in the water

    CORRECT CORID DOSAGE FOR COCCIDIOSIS IN CHICKENS
    Glenda Heywood
    NEVER PUT ACV IN WATER WITH ANY MEDICATION AS IT NULIFYS THE MEDICATION
    AND THE CORRECT AMT OF CORID 9.6% IS 2 tsp TSP OF CORID TO GALLON OF WATER
    do this for seven days
    here is the way I have used corid
    Well with all that has been said here is the thing with CORID you can put it in the water for 7 days and yes it can be fed to adults as they get coccidiosis as well as the chicks
    do this
    HERE IS THE RECIPE FOR THEM ASAP YOU GET THE CORID
    THESE TWO ARE YOUR SITUATION AT THIS TIME
    (2 do any of them not eat or drink yet?
    (3 do you see any signs of blood in the manure?
    can be slightly if first day
    most times they only drink not eat
    (4 for coccidiosis I like amproylium best generally CORID
    but most feed stores don't stock it
    My friend here gives some info on coccidiosis
    Nathalie Ross"
    (1 coccidiosis I think it might be helpful for you to know that coccidia are
    very VERY hard to trace in a fecal. When I worked as a vet tech, it
    was common procedure to go ahead and treat with a combination
    antibiotic/antiprotazoan medication like Sulfa products (Sulmet being the most
    common) based on symptom diagnosis rather than physical evidence of the
    oocysts. use Sulmet to treat them for coccidiosis
    (2 gut bacteria ..............................................................................
    THIS IS PERTANT TO YOUR PROBLEM NOW
    At 7 weeks, the babies are still in the
    process of getting their gut bacteria in order. See, they're born
    without any bacteria at all in their gut. So they eat at day 2, and put
    food in there as a food source for themselves but also for bacteria.
    Basically, it's first-come-first-serve for bacteria. If the bad ones get
    there first, they take over and your birds get ill. IF there are some
    good but mostly bad, the same thing happens. If you give your birds
    probiotics (substances containing live beneficial bacteria) your GOOD
    (3) bacteria will have the advantage. Those good bacteria crowd out the bad,
    make it impossible for the bad bacteria to live in anything but minimal
    numbers, and thus help your birds to stay healthy. So I always
    recommend giving probiotics weekly from week 2 til point of lay. Then I move
    to once a month or as needed. You can use live-culture yogurt
    (1 teaspoon per 8 newly hatched, moving up to 1 teaspoon per point of lay
    (2) bantam, 1 tablespoon per point of lay large fowl - no more please). You can
    also use powdered livestock probiotics (Probios dispersable powder
    being my absolute favorite - it's the choice of exotic bird breeders,
    (3) Or, you can go to the human health food store
    and pick up a human supplement like "acidophilus" (Lactobacilus
    acidophilus), or a combination of acidophilus and B. bifidum
    (4) sold to combat
    yeast infections. The latter is a particular useful thing for a poultry
    hobbiest to have. The addition of b. bifidum helps combat thrush.
    (5) Thrush is essentially a yeast infection that is common to birds because of
    the way their crops store feed in wet conditions. Things tend to get
    fungus and yeast there, and thus the yeast infection. That infection
    goes throughout the bird's system and is really a mess, so that
    bifidum/acidophilus mix is the best. Try to find a non-dairy liquid, and you'll
    have the ultimate probiotic.
    (6) E.Coli ................................................................................
    .............THIS IS VERY PERTANT FOR YOUR BIRDS
    In case your babies are said to have an infection of E. coli (most
    likely case) then you can try putting some vitamin E in their feed.
    ......................................................................
    (7) THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOUR BIRDS NOW
    ( GLH- advises using the 400 mg Vit E capsules cut end off and squeeze into wet mash
    and putting in a wet mash for them to eat
    ( use one capsule Vit E per bird treating and do this twice a day for a week
    Vitamin E helps fix E. coli overpopulations. You know what else helps fight E. coli?
    (8) b. bifidum. It secrets a substance that E. coli just
    can't stand. See where this is going?
    Nathalie Ross, Houston, TX
    (8-A) Put the amt of corid in the gallon of water for 7 days
    also make this wet mash with corid for two mornings
    when they finish it clean out the wet feeders and restock the dry feed
    if using corid 9.6%
    for 9 chicks
    18 tsp OF of dry mash
    36 tsp of water
    add 2 tsp of corid 9.6% to the water
    feed 2 tsp per chicken for a feeding
    feed this two mornings to get the medication in the birds
    also at same time put the corid or sulmet in the drinking water for 7 days
    each chick get 2 tsp of the wet mash with coccidiosis meds
    [8-B] speckled hen gives corid(9.6%) liquid in 3-4 tbsp of corid per gallon of water
    and after medicating give the following things
    THIS IS FOR YOUR CHICKS NOW
    the corid amproylium will work for coccidiosis
    (9) THIS IS FOR YOUR CHICKS NOW
    but now you have a difficient gut problem with the E.coli
    and it needs to have the Vitamin E put in the wet mash probiotic to help the E.coli gut problem
    do this
    (10) now the
    natural probiotic recipe is is:
    1/2 qt of dry crumbles
    3/4 QT of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good
    YOU CAN ADD LAST ON TOP OF WET MASH
    1/4 CUP OF APPLE SAUCE AS THEY WILL EAT THAT GOOD
    (11) (12) NOW THE IMPORTANT INGRIEDIENT FOR EACH CHICK FED
    and add 1- 1000 mg of Vit E by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chick fed this wet mash
    putting it in the wet mash
    this for each chick your treating
    so for each chick use 2 tsp of mixture and 1-1000 mg of Vit E
    twice a day for them till the manure is solid
    (12) and feed each chick
    2 tsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles
    (13) do this twice a day for a week
    till the chicks manure is right
    then quit the Vit E make just the wet mash probiotic
    then once a week for life
    All the while after mdicating the birds use ACV IN THE WATER
    do not use ACV with medication
    (14) 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
    then three days aweek after they are over coccidiosis
    the vit's are neccessary to clean up the damaged gut problem
    email me any questions so you are not confused

    INFORMATION ON SULMET FOR COCCIDIOSIS
    EXPLANED BY NATHALIE ROSS
    Nathalie Ross
    I would put them on 7 days of sulmet in the water...
    for the coccidiosis now that you have it
    Nathalie's explanation of sulmet is
    Sulmet is sulfamethazine.
    Sulmet is used for treatment against bacterial scours in cattle, which just happens to be E. coli.
    It also is used against Coryza, Pastuerella, and Salmonella Pullorum in poultry. It's an old fashioned sulfur drug, very broad spectrum, safe for babies, easy to give.
    then give them the wet mash probiotic so they can make good gut flora
    Here is the way I would use and have used sulmet for coccidiosis
    Now what to do and what to feed after medicating for coccidiosis
    to make sure they eat the medicated wet mash do this first ans second day of treating and medication in the water 7 days
    also I use the wet mash with sulmet or corid
    2 tbsp of dry crumbles(chicken mash)
    4 tbsp of water
    1 tsp of sulmet add to the water
    if using corid
    2 tbsp of dry mash
    4 tbsp of water
    add 2 tsp of corid 9.6% to the water
    feed 2 tsp per chicken for a feeding
    feed this two mornings to get the medication in the birds
    also at same time put the corid or sulmet in the drinking water for 7 days
    speckled hen gives corid(9.6%) liquid in 3-4 tbsp per gallon of water
    and after medicating give the following things
    either the corid amproylium or the sulmet will work but now you have a difficient gut problem with the E.coli
    and it needs to have the Vitamin E and selenium put in the wet mash probiotic to help the E.coli gut problem
    do this
    now the
    natural probiotic recipe is is:
    1 qt of dry crumbles
    2 qts of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good
    NOW THE IMPORTANT INGRIEDIENT FOR EACH CHICK FED
    and add 1- 1000 mg of Vit E by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chick fed this wet mash
    and 1 seliunium tablet crushed for each chick fed this wet mash
    putting it in the wet mash
    this for each chick your treating
    so for each chick use 2 tsp of mixture and 1-1000 mg of Vit E
    and 1 sleinium tablet crushed in the wet mash probiotic
    twice a day for them till the manure is solid
    and feed each chick
    2 tsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles
    do this twice a day for a week
    till the chicks manure is right
    then quit the Vit E and selinium make just the wet mash probiotic
    then once a week for life
    All the while after mdicating the birds use
    do not use ACV with medication
    2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated
    they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
    then three days aweek after they are over coccidiosis
