I'd like to keep my flock as free from antibiotics and chemical medications as possible. Also, I like the idea of using things I'm likely to have on hand as a natural (and likely less expensive) remedy. I'm still new to chickens and still learning. So, I'm trying to collect a list of natural remedies for diseases and other problems in the flock that I could quickly refer to sort of like I refer to the treats list. For example: worms = Pumpkin seeds (raw, unsalted, ground if dried) mites = DE in litter and bedding It would be nice to start a sticky for that under this index topic. I suppose even a general list of medicines available at farm stores matched with the disease or problem would be of great interest. If you post the remedy, I can work on a list as my limited time permits, but I bet someone already has something stored in their computer that they could share. Thanks much! (note I also posted this as a BYC site suggestion) Starter List: Bloody cut or feather loss gouge = coat area with cornstarch or flour to slow blood loss or with Blue-Kote Cannibalism = hard behavior to change. Start with distractions of treats to peck and increase their space to roam and roost. Increase protein in the flock's diet. Isolate the wounded and/or the offender. Debeak the cannibal. Try cod liver oil for more Vitamin D. Coat the wounded with pine tar to deter the cannibals. Cull a persistent cannibal. Change in weather droop = apple cider vinegar (ACV) in water (not in metal fount), 1/4 cup to each gallon; or clear Gatorade or Pedilyte added to water; treat with warm oatmeal. Frostbite = prevent with good ventilation that lowers coop humidity; coat combs with Vaseline or Bag Balm Impacted Crop = a few drops of cooking grade oil into the beak, allowing bird to swallow; massage area; offer moistened food Mites = DE in litter and bedding; can dust directly onto the bird while roosting Sneezing = VetRX; check ventilation in coop; dampen litter with half/half mixture of ACV and water. Worms = Pumpkin seeds (raw, unsalted, ground if dried) or Cayenne pepper (about 1/3 cup to gallon of food) or food grade DE in food or black sunflower seeds.
