I've got too many chicks already so I can't be getting more.

Well, there is the old hanging/swinging wire bottomed cage method....BTW, LOVE your "smiley" lau.gif

Thanks Sonoran. They are such beautiful boys.

They are...just wish they were girls for you...

My Grandmother feed use 1/2 piece of burnt toast every meal, to absorb toxins in our food. She also sent away for a light gray tan hard cube she would brake up into powder and put a little in her tea. I tasted it once, it tasted like dirt or clay, as to my memory. She was a very interesting lady.



One of my girls had tapeworm. They look like pieces of rice blobs that move and change shapes. I wormed the girls with Valbazen to get rid of them. (2 treatments)

Thank you. hugs.gif the picture is a wonderful ad. Are tap worms the most command worm? Chickens will ( try at the very lest ) to eat everything, I assume it is transmitted through wild bird poop, or is there an intermediate host in the tape worm life cycle? Is it the same type of tape worm that infects humans? Other animals? I believe tape worm must be ingested, how do you kill the eggs and worms in the poop? Borax dose something to kill bug eggs, would spreading borax on the ground kill tape worm?

Tape worms are pretty uncommon in chickens.  Round worms are supposedly the most common.  Of course there are MANY species of round worms.  Some easily large enough to see with the naked eye, others are microscopic.  And then there are other types of worms entirely.

Taught to her from her pioneer family to prevent food poisoning, with no refrigerator, death being part of life, I am pretty sure it was a clay.

Wonder if it wasn't some derivative of diatomaceous earth..(sp)..it would be pasty or clay-like if wet....

I remember it was slippery on the tung, a little gritty,I worked in ceramics, more of a porcelain smoothness, but I just can't recall the tast only that it thought it was dirt. It must of been. I will now have to see if I can get some and tast it, see if it connects to a memory.

She was a hell raiser as a kid. She ate tomato's in publics on the street. The Decency League paid a visit to her mom and that she had to do something about Gracey. It was so immoral to be flaunting herself eating that poisonous sinful fruit. Unfortunately were they had moved from tomato's were not only in flower gardens, but on the table. She sent them away, informing them that she ate tomato's also. Hot tomato] comes from.
