Ok, after posting many threads about treating my flock as Organically as possible, and mostly getting responses to the contrary.... I would like to start this thread to discuss all things Organic. Who is ALL "Organic" and natural? What works? What doesnt? Does inorganic food harm the birds?! I just spoke to a man about mites/ fleas and he said they are getting the mites and fleas because i dont give Organic feed (too expensive) and that is causing a problem of some sort. I dont believe this, as my hens SHOULD NOT be dificient in ANYTHING, considering how i feed them. I use SEVIN DUST for bugs on the birds, because i have tried everything else and bathing 30 birds in Poultry Protector isnt gonna happen 2x a year.... but i HATE SEVIN... and love it at thhe same time This guy made me feel a bit bad *** he said he wouldnt let SEVIN This is just a start of all my questions. I hope to get a good, intellectual discussion going on pros and cons and anything else about dealing with a flock in the most Organic way possible.
