    Hi,

    I am looking for a way to make my own B1 supplement because the B1 that you buy for chickens is expensive. I have a chicken that has Cocci, and people say to give them B1.

    Thanks!

    I am giving her Corid, but some people say to give her B1 also. Any ideas?

    The reverse is true. You need to be sure NOT to give vitamins while you give Corid. It would be competing with the Corid, which is trying to deprive the cocci of B1.

    When they are well, after they have finished the Corid, a course of vitamins as well as probiotics (a few spoonfuls of yogurt for a few days is fine) is fine -- but not now.
