    I have read about curing messy but with Epsom Salt dissolved in water. I know the measurements and all, but I was just wondering if anyone has done this recently.

    Thanks!

    Epsom salt can be used as a laxative in poultry. I've never had the need to use it as a flush, mine poop enough! Here's a link: Scroll down to "Laxative Solutions." I've used it for soaking their feet when treating for bumblefoot.
