Feeding Pork Liver for Riboflavin Deficiency?

    Good morning everyone!

    I've done a search on BYC and can't find the information I need. Hopefully someone can help me please.

    My rooster cannot walk and I think I've narrowed the problem down to a riboflavin deficiency. I read on another thread that giving beef liver can be very helpful (posted by Chris09). Great advice and I'm wanting to try this....but, here in Thailand we may be only able to buy PORK liver. Beef is a luxury item and not something that many Thais eat, therefore can be difficult to source.

    Anyone know please if it's ok to give him pork liver instead??

    Thanks in advance for your help [​IMG]

    I think that should be fine. It is meat and chickens eat meat. I would think you should cook it first though.
