What advice????/You mean give them junk food big name feed......?? noway....Soy laden chemical laden junk, full of pesticides..... that's mostly what is suggested. Most advice is given about FEED... that is clearly not the problem..... It has to be a pest, mites or parasite or bacteria or fungus or something, mice droppings or something, puddles galore, Cause it started with one Hen and has spread....
Garlic and probiotics etc already doing. They free range.... Its raining outside. they prob got worms galore to eat......... they get plenty of protein from that and occ meal worms, occ canned salmon, and some peanuts too
also suggested to see an avian vet which is no where near here...non existence.....SO how can I find out what is wrong......????
Do you think I want to medicate them??? I dont even take an aspirin myself...
They are clearly having a problem.. there must be some at home testing kits to send to a lab....
All the county extension agent did was look at this FORUM.....
Will you at least de worm them? Or is that chemical no good for them too?
The healthy organic soy free feed and holistic natural cures don't seem to have worked at all so far.. so its time to try something different.
You should NEVER treat and medicate for diseases or sicknesses that you don't know the chickens actually have!!! Unless you know what exactly is wrong you can't hope to help them like that.. and it will do the birds more harm than good.. and waste you time and money.. while the birds will get sicker and sicker.
Its like you having malaria and the doctor just guessing you have ear ache and giving your antibiotics... you wont' get better!
If this organic and natural way of doing things is so good.... then why are your birds so sick and have some many health problems?
You have not even taken a poop sample to a vet to check for worms?
Once your birds are better you can go back to that feed.. and use the natural holistic treatments as a preventative to disease.
I just can't understand why you won't even trial changing the food? Its not toxic! What's more important.. your living chickens or so nice idea you have about not using any commercial feed or medications?
