well, I've made it through two whole months and a week without anyone getting sick or dying. One of the bo's seems a bit underweight, but she still isn't a year old yet.
this will sound funny, but here in Minnesota the snow is gone and there has been a teeny bit of green grass - so the flocks's droppings are back to summer normal - big, green, capped with the white. After the winter and after all the looser stools tinged with blood/intestinal droppings, it makes me unreasonably happy to see such normal poop!
I'm thinking of trying to get some turkey litter to add to the run - its time to replenish it - hanging on to that tale that the turkey exposure helps with the flock's immunity. I don't logically understand how that works, but have had enough people who have had mareks in their flocks who have then added turkeys and had no further problems. worth a shot!
here's hoping everyone has healthy flocks.
Seminole, how are the chicks doing?
Or add some Fayoumis.
Chicks are doing great. They are 3 weeks old and I think I'm going to vaccinate a second time. Only because I'm terrified I may have vaccinated fuzz instead of skin. One chick is not being normal. So I'm tubing for now.
