DUCKLING CARE AND BROODER IDEAS
Ok, so I always thought that apple cider vinegar in the water was just an old wives tale. I went to a poultry workshop a couple of weeks ago though, and the vet that was speaking there said that it actually can cut down on harmful bacteria in the digestive system. She said that chickens also prefer the taste of the water when it has ACV in it & will drink more water, which is also better for their health. I am going to give it a try!
I found that putting some apple cider vinegar in about once every two weeks does them wonders but I have read that vinegar is not so fabulous in really hot weather, so I am trying Bob (Big Ol' Bird) probiotics this summer.
What's a safe way to get rid of bees congregating around my tube feeder post #11767
spray area with full-strength white distilled vinegar, sprinkle garlic powder around it or boil garlic and make a spray of it. scent will over power the scent thats attracting them
I use plain yougurt for their gut. They love it.
Trying to think... after raising these birds and sticking my toes into incubating and stuff.. the one thing I have learned and hold dearly is that each experience is an opportunity to learn. I had one pullet die on me..... I had a 100 percent hatch.. I had a killing frenzy of eggs.. I had sick chicks and each event brought me to a new knowledge of my ultimate goal.... A lesson I learned from (Just watch and learn) @aart
I might need to use that!
@lindalouly You called??

Fermenting chicken feed:
Place portions of chicken feed into a clean, food- safe dish.
Cover with non- chlorinated water.
stir 2 or 3 times a day and add water as needed
By day three it should be ready to feed to your flock, serve in a shallow dish.
