    I know this is thread has really gone off topic, but I do want to add a little bit. I heard someone in the past say that traditional medicine is good when a heroic move is needed. A car accident, a broken bone, an organ transplant. Homeopathy can't do everything, that is correct. But, it can prevent a lot of the chronic disease that is so prevalent today. It can help that broken bone that is set correctly by the doctor to heal faster and with less pain without the side affects that so many drugs have (opioid problems of today.) It can speed up all healing after surgeries that are needed and can't be avoided. I know of many people who have had surgery because the doctor said they absolutely needed it and then were worse off and could have been healed or drastically helped doing something other than the traditionally recommended path. There are so many drugs out there that are prescribed liked candy and have awful side affects. People are living with suffering that is often caused by the medical industry. The medical industry used to be the 3rd leading cause of death. I don't know if it still is, I haven't checked. So, a lot of people are dying because of unnecessary surgeries, surgical errors, drug side affects, drug interactions, etc. People need to know there are other options other than Big Pharma - for us and for our pets. Homeopathy is cheap and no one is going to make boatloads of money off of it, so no one is going to pay for studies. Why would they, they have nothing $$$ to gain.

    Not fair to blame me for the discussion moving away from the OP's chickens. Some fraudulent research was posted that had to be countered with the truth - this is fun and informative and NOT BORING. This is also a good example of how opinions are formed, how nonchalantly the public is lied to, how it's okay to trust - but only after you verified. Except for the spring chickens, everyone remembers the food pyramid from the 90s (recommended by another government ;) :D) - remember when the key to health was eating 12 slices of bread a day? That's the key to diabetes, which unfortunately flew off the charts.

    Found an excerpt from the documentary where it's explained how they invented special rules where they didn't want to take into consideration studies with under 150 subjects. Because... there was a high quality study on hay fever with 144 participants that they didn't want to include! But they routinely fund and collaborate on trials with less than 150 participants, they changed the rules just for homeopathy. That's called moving the goal posts. The excerpt is on this page:
    But, speaking of hay fever... I just realized ... Benadryl! There were those famous studies a few years ago reporting that 'Benadryl shrinks your brain'. Maybe that's why they don't want the public to know that homeopathy is good for hay fever. Who wouldn't want an option that doesn't shrink their brain? *snort* All anticholinergic drugs shrink the brain, there is special concern about allergy medications because people take them long term, so be careful out there.
    But don't self medicate with homeopathy either, chronic problems should be dealt with by a professional.

    Back to chickens, homeopathy is recommended by poultrydvm, an excellent resource. It can cure/manage a lot of Marek's cases, I found an old Marek's thread where some were successful, some weren't, the reason why not everyone was successful is the fact that homeopathy for Marek's differs from case to case. Btw @Willowspirit , for paralysis there are dozens of remedies, the treatment is highly individualized. Who, after a bad experience at the vet, or M.D., says that they don't believe in mainstream medicine? (Not me.) The key is to let them compete to serve you and not be married to just one system of medicine.

    I have one more post that belongs in this thread, it's about the history of Cina, it's rather entertaining. :pop :pop Stay tuned and know that I looove your chickens! :love
