    Hi 2bd4c10c

    I am so very sorry to read what has happened with your chicks.

    I have some ex-bat hens and have lost one that had suspected coccidia ... after having to have her put to sleep, we treated all the hens as a preventative measure with amprolium and then a 5-day vit boost. After stocking up my meds cabinet (should have done this sooner!!) another hen a few weeks later appeared to be starting to suffer the same ... gave her nutri-drops (nutri-drench) and quality oil of oregano mixed with veg oil via syringe for a couple of days and she pulled through miraculously. Please take a look at: fresheggsdaily.com I think Lisa Steele is fantastic in the world of chickens and I have realised in practice what preventative and natural ingredients can do to stave off and cure infections/diseases! A great help with so many things chicken, and gardening. All the best to you.

    yes, it is possible. not sure of the odds but my 3 week old chick was showing signs of cocci (sleepy, puffed up, lethargic but still eating and drinking).
    possible bloody stool (it was hard to tell which one of the 12 it was).

    i medicated the entire flock for 9 days for moderate outbreak with their water.

    she got better. and the rest of the flock didn't show any signs.

    Can you eat Cornish broilers after you treat them with corid? We are going to treat them today and are a month old

    Absolutely. Corid is not an antibiotic and has no withdrawal period. It is commonly put into starter feed for broilers, so every chicken in the supermarket was raises with Corid.
