I've been using it all winter for my big girls (laying age). I really believe it has helped as a general tonic against the stress of cold/winter. It's helped the feathers regrow on one girl who was pecked bald, and I hope that the amino acids have helped their diets as well. It's such a good, all-natural product that I feel confident it can only be beneficial.
I will probably stop using it in summer, or maybe just once a week or so. I use 1 tsp in a gallon waterer.
We use it during times of stress, like severe heat or if there is an illness going around. They seem to like it... I wasn't so sure because the water is an icky color, but they don't seem to care. The only thing I don't like is it clogs up the little water hole, so I have to scrub the waterers even more when I use it.
well I put my chicks on it as a preventative. They came from the same hatchery as many others who are having problems with sick chicks, so I thought it would be wise just in case they were exposed to anything.
They are only 2 weeks old. I am giving them a teaspoon in a gallon of water. They were so funny. When I first put it in the water they looked at it suspiciously , it was so funny, like they were saying "what the heck is this"?Then they would taste it, freeze, taste it again, it really was cute. They seem to like it ok.
Do you think its safe to keep them on it for about 2 weeks?
