    Chickens NOT Laying at all

    It is probably the heat, don't force them to lay as it is good for the hen to take a break and laying in the heat might be too stressful on your hens. Without breaks every now and then they could develop internal problems such as internal laying, eyp, etc. Once the weather starts to cool down...

    I use to cook mine in the microwave for a few minutes after I wash them. Make sure to wash them good. After the microwave they are easy to crush, let them cool done first because they are hot.

    Help! Moldy Raspberries eaten

    To play it safe, a molasses flush will be good. 1 part molasses to 40 parts water. So 1 TBS molasses to 2.5 cups water if small flock or adjust accordingly if larger flock, let them drink that for 4 hours and remove molasses water, that should help flush out any toxins. They should be fine, but...

    I bought the tylan 50 today. I was reading threads on administrating it and am a bit confused with the conflicting advice. Some say at the back of the neck and some say give it in the breast muscle. Which is better? Thanks.

    Tylan 50 injectable dosage to give orally for hen with respiratory illness UPDATE READ POST 6

    I didn't think of that, I guess that means she will get an injection. Since it causes damage in the muscle where do I give the shot? Thanks again.
