    Someone I know has 2 adult chickens that are infected and they are worried about them infecting the chicks (which are right next to them) and the other adults. Is there anything they could do?

    Well it says in this article:
    300 mg of duramycin per gallon of drinking water.do this for 3 days and then vitamin supplements.

    The chicken-chick says how to deal with i.t
    Also what to do for the other chickens.

    I would personally do this while feeding the duramycin in the water,
    as well as after medication is done.

    USE THE WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE
    to help the gut flora in the chickens body,
    to fight the disease also.
    AND AFTER MEDICATING THEM,
    use clean water of which you add 2 tsp of Braggs unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar daily.
    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR CHICKENS WITH ANY HEALTH PROBLEMS

    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR YOUR CHICKENS HEALTH.

    ACV by Bragg's is sold by Amazon and at Walmart. (remember to get Bragg's unpasturized, as it has the "brown mother" in the bottom of the bottle.)

    Glenda Heywood
    My Daughter JoAnna Mertz feeds this wet mash probiotic several times a week to our 10 hens, 5 buff orpingtons 5 plymouth rocks, and they are eating it up in 30 minutes.

    To make the WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE HERE IT IS
    (A) TAKE 2 CUPS OF DRY CRUMBLES OR PELLETS,
    (B) 1 TSP OF DRY FLAX SEED MEAL (THAT IS FOR HUMANS)
    (C) PUT 4 CUPS OF MILK ANY KIND SOUR OR FRESH, 1 tbsp of dry flax seed meal,
    (D) AND 2 TBSP OF THE BRAGG;S ACV.

    (E) ALSO 1 /2CUP OF UNFLAVORED YOUGART.

    (D) MIX GOOD. PUT IT IN GLASS CONTAINER, AND KEEP ON THE COUNTER OVER NIGHT.

    (E) IF IN THE MORNING YOU CAN ADD ANOTHER CUP OF MILK TO THE MIX TO MAKE IT SOLUBLE, like cookie dough, not soupy,

    (F) DO NOT MAKE IT SOUPY AS CHICKENS DO NOT LIKE IT SOUPY.
    (G) IF THE MIX IS OKAY IN THE MORNING AND NOT TOO DRY FEED IT IN THE GLASS CONTAINER SO ALL THE CHICKENS CAN GET TO IT.

    (H) I USED 2 VERY LARGE GLASS PIE PLATES. AND THEN CLEAN THE PIE PLATES BY BRING THEM BACK TO THE HOUSE.

    (I) FEED THIS AMOUNT TO EACH CHICKEN 3 tbsp of mix when wet, so make your recipe to fit all amount of chickens to be fed.
    (J) WHEN MIXING FOR 1 CHICKEN DO THISIE: take 3 tbsp of dry feed and add 6 tbsp of milk, 1/4 tsp of dry flax seed meal, 1 tbsp of yougart plain kind, 1 tsp ACV,

    (K) NOW IF THE CHICKEN ISSICK ADD THIS TO THE WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE
    (L) 1 Vit E capsule buy cutting end of capsule off and squeezing it into the wet mix.
    (M) 1-Vit B tablet crushed in table spoon and add a little water to dissolve crushed tablet and then add to wet mash
    (N) 1- Selenium tablet crushed in tbsp and add little water to it and then add to wwet mash.
    (O) now mx good and feed sick chuicken evey day for 7 days
    (P) now feed it 5 times for second week.
    (P) then 2 times a week frlife.
    (Q) feed all healthy chickens 2 times a week for life WITH VITAMINS ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS.
