Hey Kathy

 

Sorry, my bad; as I have been following the thread, I confess to not rereading all the posts again and was going on memory.

 

With all respect and simply for my clarification, was that pointed out simply as an aid in the diagnosis process or to point out that I should have said "well into at least the third week of multiple treatments" or that the fact that this may have been going on for more than a year makes my suggestion irrelevant?

 

Seriously, I am just asking as I have been spending more time on BYC in at attempt to become a more active member, aid and assist if I can and to pass on some things I hope I have learned in my two years.

 

What I was trying to say was that it appears multiple treatments and changes have been made while an actual diagnosis does not appear to have been reached.  I do truly believe it is time to take a deep breath, provide the worming, dusting and good feed and then take a step back to give the chickens chance to settle, assess each one individually and hopefully reach a diagnosis.

 

Sorry, meant to add: And/Or call in a Vet to determine exactly what the issue is.

this is my last word on this i am tiered of banging my head against the wall    i had a look and i came across a doctor jacquie jacob

 from the university of kentucky no less    this learned lady writes 

 

commercial feeds from a reliable feed store have all the nutrients and in the right proportions that chickens need   a balanced diet is necessary 

for optimal growth and production  she goes on to say what feeds  protein whatever you get the picture   and then she says 

laying hens should be switched to a layers feed she goes on to tell you why it the same as many on here have told you

 

  she also listed some common mistakes made  these are      providing vitamins and electrolyte supplements for more than 10 days

                                                                                           supplementing complete feeds with cracked corn  oats or other grains 

                                                                                         regularly adding green chops  lettuce other low nutrition ingredients

                                                                                             administering not needed or inappropriate medication

:frowI'm out of here too... seems the OP is either having fun with us all or just not willing to listen to ANY advice... advice that she asked for in the first place!

 

Bye.
