Interesting fact I've just learned about them. I went to the feed store to get some antibiotics for my ducks drinking water to treat their early stage bumble foot. Talked to the lady that handles the ducks, chicks, etc. They don't have any right now, but the told me about Ideal Poultry and that half of the birds they get have respiratory illnesses. So they give them medicated feed and medicated drinking water. The medicated water so they get over it fast and customers don't notice since they don't hold back on the birds. Still every morning she has to remove dead birds. She said she would not get any birds for herself from Ideal, because they are simply not healthy birds. She said you risk infecting your birds, if you bring home little ones and the other birds get exposed to them. She also said it would be better if the store would buy else where, but it is not her choice. Thought I share this one, because it is quite interesting.
