I was wondering what the dosage was for chickens.
I use GSE for everything! Is the kind you have concentrated? Most of it is. A little goes a long way. I am new to taking care of chickens but I know GSE works really well as an anti biotic. When I take it in juice, I usually put about 3 drops because I can't stand the taste. I plan on giving some to my rooster and will probably put about 10 drops in about a quart of water, but maybe someone else on here can be more specific.
For healthy chickens, I use about 30 drops to 1 gallon of water. If you have a sick chicken that you are dosing individually, I would do 1-2 drops in about 1/4 cup of water and squirt it down her throat, 3 times a day. I have also been known to just stick straight GSE in one of our silkie roosters mouths, as he sounded congested and I was afraid he was coming down with the coryza, but he is next to impossible to catch, so it was a one time deal. Next day he was fine and he never lost a beat.
That's what's working to keep my chickies healthy, you may find that you don't need quite that much or you may need more.
Also, on a side note, I discovered that they make GSE in pill form and it is awesome!!! That is what I am currently taking to get over a bad flu and it it working wonders without the bad taste.
Hi from Costa Rica,
I can't speak specifically to the dose for the chickens, but I am using G.S.E. for an antibacterial / antifungal treatment for the coop and all basic cleaning purposes. We don't have the U.S. brand names here. I buy ours at the agricultural supply house, and we are mixing the liquid concentrate at a rate of 6ml (cc) per liter of water.
It is sold here as a general antibacterial / antifungal treatment for crops.
To dose the girls, I think I would prefer the food-grade citricidial or other accepted brands we use for ourselves--purchased from the USA.
How many days do you give the drops for, thanks
where yall buy it for a good price? esp that food grade citric dial ??? can it made yourself? I havent seen regular grapfruits in years>>. only Red Ruby etc... I wonder if the seeds are just dried and ground? HUH????
