I also have different size teaspoons. one weighs even 5 gr of powder but I don't use that one for medicines. those are good for ice cream or similar!

I have two sets, one weighs more than the others. Always best to weigh powders using a gram scale. :D

nothing in greece is cheap. they cost as if they have been made of gold. at the moment I have priorities and cannot think of things I can live without.

 

I showed my teaspoons to the vet and he told me how much of powder to use so I will stick to that.

 

have you ever tried blue stone with your chickens? I checked my pullet wit the fungus infection, her vent area is clean and the bump almost totally gone.

Hello, 

I was just wondering if anybody here had a solution to treating a flock of seven chickens for canker. The whole "flock" has it. It seems to be very persistent. How can I get rid of it?

Thank you
