In N.H.,Tony.

Try this,.it works for me. Put red cayenne pepper in the bird food every now and then especially when immune systems are low due to wet / cold rainy weather. This kills the protozoa that causes blackhead and kills turkeys, peacocks and pheasants.the red.pepper does not hurt them ! Also when you hatch chicks and have them in a brooder get some chicken yard dirt and put it in a flat so the chicks can scratch around in it. It builds up their immunity to cocci.
