    Is there anything safe from GMO
    Bacitracin Methylene Disalicylate

    was wondering if this was safe and where to buy it in raw form to add with natural feed seems like it is a antibiotic not sure.
    If anyone has anything that they add to natural feed to help with disease and supply nutrients let me know thanks

    Yes, it is an antibiotic. Not a good idea to give antibiotics unless you know which disease your birds have and that it is the correct one for treating it.

    so don't just add things to cover most stuff that can go wrong? just feed natural seeds and corn and wait till see problems or just add a lot of different vitamins and stuff in there feed each day?

    I guess I do not understand why someone would want to feed all natural, non-GMO and/or organic but then want to add an antibiotic just to cover stuff that may never happen? And no, seeds and corn is not a balanced diet. If you don't want to feed commercial feed then look for an organic feed, but they need some kind of balanced feed with the proper balance of vitamins and minerals.

    As far as antibiotic's? No, you never want to just give them in an attempt to ward off disease. That is how diseases build resistance to the meds we depend on when a problem does arise. Treat disease when and if it shows up.
