    For all of you out there, please go online now and order some GSE (grapefruit seed extract). This is a must have for chicken people! It has saved my entire flock (minus one but she died because she didn't get any!)

    Almost every issue I am seeing can at least be helped by GSE. You just put some in their water daily. If they are not eating or drinking, you can force feed it. I've used it for respiratory, intestinal, parasitic, wound healing, etc. This in combination with colloidal silver is like the most potent antibiotic out there, only it is not going to kill one good thing in your chicken's body (unlike antibiotics that kill everything, including the good bacteria, which then opens your animal up for more issues).

    Here is the product description on the NutriBiotic brand: "NutriBiotic Maximum GSE[​IMG] (Grapefruit Seed Extract) Liquid Concentrate is a natural quaternary compound synthesized from the seed and pulp of organically grown grapefruit.

    The grapefruit bioflavonoid (polyphenolics) are converted into an extremely potent compound that has been proven highly effective in numerous applications. Maximum GSE is used by healthcare professionals worldwide as nutritional support for individuals with an array of health concerns.

    It contains high levels of vitamin C and E, and bioflavonoids. These important substances have an antioxidant action and can neutralize free radicals that damage cells and cause a number of illnesses.

    Grapefruit seed extract is being used successfully in humans and animals alike. It naturally helps to detoxify, enhance and support the immune system. After 35 years in use by naturopathic physicians, clinics and the general public grapefruit seed extract has been proven to be a safe and effective!"

    I know I sound like a broken record and there will be some doubters out there, but just try it. Iherb.com has a small bottle for $13 and they have free shipping over $40 (so pick up some colloidal silver while you are at!) Even without free shipping, their shipping for this one item is $2/USPS or $4/UPS. For $15 you can have on hand something that will treat 400 chickens with 1 dose (at a 1 drop dose if you were force feeding). How can you beat that? I have no vested interest in this stuff. I am just a customer who found out it works. I brought a chicken back from the brink of death with GSE and I just want to get the word out so that everyone can have some on hand for when an emergency arrives. There is nothing worse than having to wait it out all night until the local feed store or TSC opens. If you get this, you won't have to.
