good question, I may need that info also,,,,you being so close to me I am sure you have some of the same problems with mud all winter, most of my houses are protected from wind so i never had much freezing this year..
figure i will treat for worms this year and just keep a close eye out for lice and mites.....that is 3 dozen eggs getting thrown away daily..
ok I dont understand quail! it says if they have a bib under neck they are boys.... the blue and one of the girls have bibs!
and only lay 1 egg a day until age 2 and then every other day.... maybe one had a sticker in there!
Okay, so what is it you are supposed to use for what? Tetracycline is for all antibiotic needs, or just most? What ones?
Is Safeguard wormer for all worms, or just certain ones? What does shaking their heads, and swollen eyes mean? OMG! I am just gonna burn the coop down. I give up!
LOL! I think everyone of us have had a burn the coop down day (or week). I've had at least 3 this year. You'll figure it out, and it will get better. I'd help you, but I'm learning as I go. I personally want to get my hands on some pour on Ivermectin. I know it's controversial, but from what I've read it helps with a lot of different worms, mites, lice etc. I can't find the right one though.
I missed her post! oh no!! what did you find out?
Did you miss my post right before you found your dead bird? I had just found a dead bird. She looked good as far as comb color and position (not flopped over) vent looked good, no mites, not egg bound, one light green poo yesterday morning, puffed up yesterday, and lethargic. No one else is showing any symptoms.
I am worried now about the whole coop. Yes, the run is muddy and a puddle in front of the door, but their days are spent in the dry area of the run, and a dry room in the coop. Dry food and water are clean, and they eat FF (ACV is supposed to keep them healthy, right?).
weird..... are we all spread out on the map too? I looked at fluffy too, only thing was her foot swelling
I think she getting better:) He acting more lively and talk all the time now. her one eye was swollen and closed but now she can see out of it. I am hoping to have her out there with the girls soon and out of my bath room.
And how much food in ozs does one bird eat? Bc Shadow is acting like she part of my family at a buffet.
OK do update, white hen is still alive and eating some bread this am. She is moving around but not the best, so no pasty butt, no lice or mites that I saw, good feeling crop, doesn't feel egg bound and breathing fine. What should I do???? She seems fine but she isn't and isn't showing anything!
oh my, I have no clue! have you already posted in emergency sections?
frontline is expensive isnt it?
oh no wing!! get better and enjoy some shots!
