    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum as of 5 minutes ago! And as of today, my chicks have what I suspect to be a cocci infection. I found this link to a PDF concerning organic treatments for all sorts of ailments for chickens (I'm big on organics). Hope this helps someone! ~ Oaknim

    Thanks! I've been lurking for awhile now and decided I wanted to join into the fun, rather than be a wall flower. I've read a lot of questions by members on organics and every single one of my animals is treated organically, with herbs and homeopathic treatments. I'm not a purist, so if push comes to shove and they need meds or they'll die, I'll choose life and take those meds! I even worm the kids with DE and we all drink a teaspoon of bentonite clay a week - my family thinks I'm crazy, but I've always been weird, so why stop now? [​IMG] ~ Oaknim

    Oaknim,
    It sounds like you'll be a great addition to the site. I know I'm all for the organic approach whenever possible as are many members here on BYC.

    You're so nice, Accidental Farm! My head is going to explode if it gets any bigger...[​IMG]

    Another good link is:

    http://www.theholistichorse.com

    This is where I buy all of my wormer for my animals and their ground flax seed. I like her wormer because it contains probiotics, grapeseed extract, bentonite, and ground flaxseed. All of her DE is food grade - she's a wonderfully nice lady!

    I've already learned so much from BYC and I love seeing everyone's pictures! I need to stop procrastinating and put some pics on here myself. [​IMG] ~ Oaknim
