They in my opinion receive maybe a bit too much scratch because I thought they were too thin and they get evening snacks of veggies and fruits. So I think anymore and they will be overfed in my opinion.
Veges and snacks should be no more than 10 % of their diet .
Their chicken food is a balanced diet for them ..if you give them more of other food ..they are not getting what they need
Sunflower Seeds have protein ...but they also have shells / husks ( undigestable )
Scratch is exactly that - something for them to scratch ..for 4 chickens that should be a handful
Veges and fruits ? what do you give them ?
Raw veges are best - kale , spinach , grated carrot , romaine lettuce .
I give them treats they cant get now ...cant get grass
Fruits should only be a occasional thing - they taste good - dont have much protein
Chickens need Protein - it goes out of them in eggs - if they dont get enough
They can peck each other and calcium will come out of their bones if they dont get enough of that ..
I also save egg shells - microwave them & grind them up ..they go in their treat too
Can that fish amoxocillen be found somewhere locally? What is the difference between The fish amoxocillen and the Duramycin? I notice that the amoxocillen for fish is a tablet. How much would I give a chicken if I bought them? I'm just wondering the differences.
Thank you very much for responding.
Amoxicillin is a light antibiotic - even kids can take it -easily available & made I think.. I use it because it is cheap and easily obtained & doesnt have warning on it
I refrigerate it ..it last a long time ..it can be used for other pets too
others have a warning
I have not looked ...Pet smart may have it ...it is so cheap here I didnt bother looking
