The private poultry farm I got some of my chickens from thought she may have gotten into something in the woods or botulism from the dirty duck water. She didn't physically see her but I sent a pic and talked to her about symptoms. Her name was purchie and was my daughters favorite. I have learned a bit form this forum and try to Google some things. You stated you are still researching may I ask where are you looking for your research, Internet, books etc?

I read a lot of blogs, magazines. Internet articles and talk with people.. The same as most others. I'm just trying to assess the pros and cons of worming for my flick.

A picture is always worth showing.

You can get a soft egg from time to time.... I would keep oyster shell available...it will provide extra calcium but is not providing grit...as it dissolves readily.

So if I continue to see soft shells I should get some oyster shell and grit and should these 2 be mixed together seporately or with their food. Also is this ok for ducks becauSe my chicken and ducks livery and eat together.

Do not mix grit & shell together. .nor with their food. Separate containers for each.
