    I have been reading a lot of treads about the vasrious products used to keep our flocks safe from disease and pests. I raise my chickens only organically and I advertise my eggs as such (I do say I am not certified) . With just a few birds I was not as worried as I am now about problems that might come up. What if any of the various products could I use and still be able to say my chickens are organic?

    I haven't gotten my little babies yet, but have been doing lots of research beforehand. I just found this today and it looks interesting. It's called "Remedies for Health Problems of the
    Organic Laying Flock". I can't agree with everything it recommends, but there is some good information.
