    Quote:Corid is Amprolium. You can sometimes find Amprolium in a powder form as well as the liquid form.


    Sulmet also works on some respitory infections as well as cocci. Amprolium is just for cocci.

    Cocci is an organism that really likes warm, humid wet conditions. It's something that you really can't blame a breeder for. I know you're close to me, and so we have the same weather, which is a perfect breeding ground for cocci.

    I would use the Corid, because it's more gentle on the system than Sulmet. I think you can buy it by the packet at TSC, and it's about $19.99.

    Once you start using that, if you've caught it early enough, your birds will improve quickly.

    Good luck to you!

    BLAH!!!

    I will have to run up there today. I am not positive yet that they have it. I just saw some questionable poop today in the coop so I am going to go take pictures and post. They are running around a lot, eating, pooping and what not but some of their droppings just looking a bit on the reddish side and one part of one had a pinkish red hue to it.

    The tell-tell signs of Cocci are:

    1. Lethargic
    2. Drooping wings
    3. Not eating as normal

    Not to mention that they LOOK sick.
    Hope it's not cocci.

    From the description you gave of your fowl/droppings they don't sound like they have cocci at all.
    It actually sounds like you are seeing the sloughing off of the lining of the intestine: normal.
