Yep, probably what my girls think when they come looking for me.

 

Check it out, Beatrice is now a year old (I got her in January and she was 8 weeks), and her feathering is changing. She's getting white tips on the ends of her feathers, most noticeably around her hackles. Also now she's not broody she's back to being sooky again, wanting to be babied, rather than hatch them.

I share that argument. You can't find something you don't look for.

The people I know with it have not left the country to get it. Although one did to get treatment.

Her colours are looking great. I find that with my Belgians it takes at least a year to see there true colourings.

Sulphur dust is fairly easy to buy. I just refer to it as ' orchardist sulphur ' because we are surrounded by orchards and our local Roberts store sell it's by the kilo or in 20k bags.

Check her crop is emptying over night, not hard etc. The drool was a symptom both times Carl had impacted crop.

Speaking of Carl, did I ever tell you guys I worked out her trigger? Scratch mix. I had run out for quite a few months and then bought some again. After 3 days she was going off her food again. Stopped the scratch mix and she perked up again. I think her crop just goes too slow for it and then it sits in there and sets off a chain reaction. (I only throw one and a bit handfuls to 7 birds)
