fisherlady, heres a terrible picture of some of the chicks, have 17 out, with four or five more eggs to go, just remember, i'm not a picture taker, i usually leave it to my husband.
You are way too hard on yourself...these are very good pics!! And very cute babies..congrats Sharron!
okay so I bought
1. garden and poultry dust -----it has permethrin as the active ingredient and all kinds of caution instructions about not letting children or adults come in contact with this dust in a drift.
2. "all natural" poultry protector in a spray bottle.
this one says: non toxic alternative to harsh chemical treatments. helps protect your coop and birds from mites, fleas, and ticks.
active ingredient: potassium sorbate, 1% by weight
other ingredients: water, yeast, citric acid 99.9%
so I am wondering if the all natural spray is 99.9 percent OJ and water??????
dhetzel will know this , I am sure!
Plus I have asthma and have been very sick this week with respiratory something............cold, bronchitis, sinus infection who knows ....maybe strep sore throat..............
I don't like the stuff that has all kinds of warnings re: inhalation risks.....................anyway------------------lets see what you all think about these!
I use 'sevin'...only when absolutely necessary...I am trying out a all-natural-'cleaner-bug spray' I have found on pinterest. It is mostly made up of vinegar, with citrus added (orange/lemon-peels) and other things that little bugs and such don't like..cinnamon/lavender/oregano...all natural items like that...all things I am growing, which saves$$$..and that's a good thing anytime!! I have been "brewing" this stuff for almost a month now(mason jar)..it will be ready in about another week. I am also using this in the house for a all-natural cleaner, great around the dogs and grand-baby! Some really great things on Pinterest...if anyone wants to 'follow' i don't mind giving out my pinterest name..if anybody want to share
