I was just doing a bit of research on some sulfa meds, found at poultry pedia that you should NOT use Sulfaquinoxaline in poultry so be sure you don't get a product with that in it, seems it has a high toxicity rate.

Like I say, the sulfa trimeth would be the best choice, imo.

Here are a couple more links for you to look over when you have a chance.

( prob. will find that site useful for a LOT of drug info. )

Also per the sulfas:

The chicks now all appear to be well. They are active,eating and their droppings seem to have become more solid . But they still droop their wings every once in a while . Is this normal behavior. And should it always suggest sickness even if they are responsive and alert?

I now have them only on probiotics. How long should I give them these?

Thanks very much for all your advice.

If you could just help me compile & list the dosage (in ml) of the treatments for various disease that you educated me on:

Coccidiosis- Amprolium - Dosage ?
Intestinal infection - Sulpha drug - Dosage ?
Blackhead- Metronidazole - Dosage ?
Deworming - Fenbendazole - Dosage ?

this is great news, thanks for the update !

The drooping wings should improve with time unless they are possibly staying overheated?
I would keep up the probiotics for about a week and get them back on the med. starter also, if you haven't already.

Most of your med. doses can be found again at :
https://sites.google.com/a/poultrypedia.com/poultrypedia/medicine-chart

The Bactrim dose is not there that I can see but I go with 30mg/kg (25mg/kg bw sulphonamide + 5mg/kg bw trimethoprim) 2x a day for 7 days, as a rule.

If anyone out there disputes any of these dosages or can elaborate on them then by all means, feel free to do so.
This is what has woked for my birds.

They are not over heated . Possibly molting at 3 months ?

This is what I use:
Amprolium:
20% Powder - 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 5 days, then 1/3 teaspoon per gallon for 7 days
9.6% Liquid - 2 teaspoons per gallon for 5 days, then 1/2 teaspoon per gallon for 7 days.

Sulpha drug - 50mg/kg twice a day

Metronidazole - for blackhead 50mg/kg once a day for five days

Fenbendazole - 50mg/kg for five days

Disclaimer: This is what I use. Always best to consult a vet.
