Hi, Canoe!

Who's username are you referring to?
Yours of course.
It reminds me of the sound I make when I imitate cockerels starting to crow.

I have a few of my own. Like people claiming all their chickens lay multiple eggs a day.

Why are ivermectin, pumpkin seed and corid hot buttons?

Does laying an egg that been stuck for week and is followed by a soft-shelled egg within 12-16 hours count? That is the only two eggs per day scenario I have seen in my flock. And I wouldn't have believed it possible if I had not seen her lay both.

Anyway, let me start with Corid. Years ago everyone decided that the 9.6% liquid Corid dose was ~2 teaspoons per gallon (actual correct amount is 9.5ml per gallon) which is 960mg and is the correct amount for treating a severe outbreak, but someone did some math based on some flawed science and decided that the 20% powder dose was 1/2 teaspoon per gallon. What they failed to understand was that one teaspoon of the powder does not weigh 5 grams. Sadly, that mis-information went viral and many people still think that the correct dose is 1/2 teaspoon per gallon. Sigh...

Per the mfg, the powder weighs 2.7 grams, so 2.7 x 200 = 540 mg. I've weighed it, as did a friend, we both got something closer to 3 grams, so 3 x 200 = 600, which means the correct severe outbreak dose is no less than 1.5 teaspoons and not more than 1.75 teaspoons.

Anyone that still gives 1/2 teaspoon per gallon is medicating water with 270-300 mg, which is way less that the amoun recommended by the mfg and the FDA.

Will elaborate on the others later.

I don't use DE in dust baths. Mine are wood ashes, sand, a bit of soil and ag lime.
I never ever want to crack an egg and see this.... I would have a hissy fit!!

roundworm

I read that oviduct flukes are sometimes found in eggs.

Mine like to "dust" bathe in the spillage from cleaning out the bottom of the chimney

Everyone else, my hot buttons don't make me mad, they're just topics I'm passionate about, and I actually like discussing them.
