    She seems to be doing a lot better today! It is nice to see her finally improve. I am also giving the rest of my flock the preventative dose. Is this something that I should give to them at regular intervals, say every six months, or will they not need a preventative dose again?

    I do a preventative dose every 3 weeks for 5 days until the are 9 months. I don't see coccidiosis symptoms. Do that on one group of chicks and not the other, and you will see the difference. The one chick you had that showed symptoms? Do the treatment dose for 7 days. Let me know how the bird is doing. After 7 days, use a good quality vitamin-mineral powder like Avian Super Pack and Probios dispersible powder for 3 days.
