    Have you looked up any of the TTO studies? Or are they all false because they try to use science? It's a nice product, useful, but not the only way to go, and for many applications, not the best way.

    Personally, I can't speak on your product as I haven't needed it. For full disclosure I haven't had chickens long either.

    What "product"?

    Mary is just applying science to refute holistic 'beliefs'.
    Facts are that essential oils can be an irritant to birds respiratory systems,
    and are not a 'cure' for what might ail a chicken coop.

    Ok.. Just trying to help people out. Damn, why are so many of you so slanted?? There is absolutely nothing wrong with holistic approaches that work. I'm not going to change what I do based on someone's cultural programming that if we don't use what we are told then nothing else works. Everything is slanted. End of story. I will not stop trying to help people find healthier cleaner ways of living because someone else believes everything they read. Aka.. I don't care.

    All I am saying is it works for general cleaning. I have used it with absolutely no issues. I have seen to many attacked for trying to avoid commercial bs.. It is wrong.. So yeah. Is this thing they recommend one of the sponsored product. O can only assume yes by the way I was approached just for mentioning something different. Go on and worship your corporate gods. They really care about animals and us. Don't believe me; tour a factory farm or check ingredients in prepackaged food. ;)

    They do not care about me. I do so I trust me; not them or anyone else who goes after those who try to live outside of that.
