    This is a good tutorial on the process, but does not identify barber pole eggs. It also does not give the number of eggs that identify numbers of eggs. But it is a good place to start. I'll see what else I can find.

    SBC just posted, print out her article and this one. I had the advantage of someone teaching me, get your supplies together and post pictures, ask questions and we will walk you through it. I'm definitely NEW to this process, but others are not. I love BYH and the desire that people have to help others.

    @Baymule I looked at the link you provided. I do have several links here on exactly how to do it step by step as well as understanding multipliers and when you cannot get 4 grams.
    There are lots of pics too. More detailed so people have a better understanding. I have seen tutorials where they fail to mention fine strainer and others that mention a centrifuge (not necessary)
    I also do NOT like any salt based solutions. Sugar is best IMO because it is exact for proper weight AND it doesn't crush eggs like other solutions do. Giardia is one that is easily damaged.

    I also love the kit that I have from Chalix (aka vetslides) - none of the cheap plastic stuff many sell. The beakers are designed specifically for the McMasters, so it makes it quite easy.

    What about normal coccidia numbers? Especially for kids?

    it is basically a glucose inhibitor.
    When not used properly this is what builds resistance.
