    I have a 2 1/2 years old barred rock who is pretty sick. Diarrhea for a week now, tired, not eating well, this came on sudden, she was fine the day before this all happened. I ordered Corid, should come in today. Since it kills the parasitic protazoa, would it kill any worms also??

    It won't kill worms.
    Do you see blood in stool? If not, it's most likely not coccidia and shouldn't be treated as such.
    Any respiratory issues?
