Watery Droppings

Hi, I'm new to this forum and Pigeons in general, I'm seeking some help. I took one of my homers to an Avian vet for being a little puffy and didn't have great droppings. They did a fecal test , the fecal exam came back positive for Coccidia. I treated with Endocox powder ( 2.5% Toltrazuril) Instructions say to use this for 3 days in a row in the drinking water and repeat six days if needed. After treatment ( 2 days ago) the droppings are pretty watery. I didn't know if this was normal after medication? I started giving them some probiotics ( Pro-bios). Birds are still a little puffy. They are eating and drinking well. I am looking for some guidance on the next step I should take. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I attached a picture of some droppings this morning. Just wanted to get some feed back on that. Once again thank you all so much.
Ps I have 4 homers in total.

If you are giving the correct dosage, then after the 6 days, I would treat again. If still doesn't help, then get back to the vet. The enclosure must be scraped clean daily during treatment.
If birds aren't eating well, you will need to hand feed until they are.

Couldn't help but to notice, you have chicken wire on your enclosure. That won't keep predators out. Rats can get in and will kill the birds, and raccoons can tear through it. A better wire would be a heavy gauge 1/2 inch hardware cloth.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass........It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Thank you for the advice, I do appreciate it. The chicken wire is for outside aviary that the birds only go in supervised. Their loft has the hard wire mesh.

Hello. What about worms. One of my birds was having similar droppings, and it had adult worms in the droppings. I used a dewormer and got the rest of the worms out. I sitll have many tablets left that i can sell/share. Thanks.
