I clean my coop with a vinegar water solution regularly................I wonder if this is enough?     I could always soak citrus peels in the liquid.......cant see how that would do any harm.........

one day, it won't even matter what your "friends" think...oh, and being "weird" is an asset!;)...I find the most interesting people are "wierd"...

it's the stuff for garden...we have used it on dogs, in their yard areas and now I use it for chickens. Yes, you do have to be mindful of the dust...you don't want to just go flailing it everywhere, but it works when you need something to kick butt. We have gotten it at lowes and kmart and walmart.

Wow, I am gone for 2 days and I had 200+ posts to catch up on....... Welcome to all the new folks!   I loved reading about all of you Bee people.... that sounds like something I will consider for future endeavor.  I love seeing all the fuzzy butts... very cute babies.
 

We got the duck house built and set in the run area.  Today we butchered and then had a family Easter Egg hunt for the kids....I am spent.....

 

Wing did you ever get you pigs? 

 

Chippy I love that you are surprising your sister.:thumbsup

 

Aurora glad to hear that chip has found his voice.:yiipchick

 

Barbie I hope the incubator works out... sounded like a good deal.

 

The one miraculous thing that has taken place over the last 4 days is that I have not stepped foot in TSC....too afraid of what might be discounted that I wont be able to resist.:barnie

             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!

Sounds like you may have seen some parasites on your chooks. I have a suggestion if you're open to it, since you've only got a few birds, wash them. This isn't the most practical solution for people who keep 50 chickens, but it could be practical for you. A starting place anyway. They squawk a bit at first but usually settle down and even fall asleep while being bathed.
