    I washed the waterers and feeders in bleach water, can I still re-use them. I think I had a case of cocci but not sure, I was new to the meat bird thing. So would you re-use waterer for layers or should I only keep it for more meat birds? Thank you!

    We reuse ours too after our flock of meaties are processed in the spring and fall. The main thing is if you are rotating the feeders is clean,clean, clean. Good Luck !

    Reuse them. If you cleaned them and sanitized them then the cocci should be killed.

    Cocci does occur naturally in the soil.

    Meat birds have pretty loose stools so unless you saw blood it just may have been how the droppings typically are.
