    Thank You Heather!! I am gonna get it for the worms, but also I had mites in the fall, and I'm not messing with those suckers anymore. I use DE everywhere (a whole 50 lb. bag in 4 months.) and those POS's still got in!
    Yeah, good luck with that! Hasn't worked for me yet, so I just don't go at all, LOL! I send DH.
    Early winter I had a Serama hen just die for no apparent reason, but I think it was a seizure (they have a lethal gene). She was a broody too, with one chick. It was so sad to watch that chick fend for itself, but it made it and just started laying eggs last week. Nature is fickle.

    You can use dog or cat. I get the best buy version. I go to wally world to get the generic, it will price out better if you get the large dog version. I put a 1 drop in these places, base of neck, under each wing, and base of the tail. If they are really bad at the vent area, I will put a drop there too, but the eggs will not be viable for a couple of weeks.

    I don't use this medicine on my egg flock. I should say I do use it, but the eggs get tossed for 10 days. It says the amount of medicine is trivial that is in the chicken, but I don't want to eat them anyway!

    Sally - I like that one! Price is great and size seems about right. My 36 is fine, but i need more!

    Wingstone - looks like fondant to me. And I am literally right up the creek from you. Only right by the creek. And I have springs on the property. Last spring I got my trailer stuck in the field and it was weeks before I could get it out. Tractor and 75 feet of rope I managed to pull it free. The flood the other year the creek was three feet into my basement. Not ground water, creek level. I know mud! I'm surprised you can get to the farm after heavy rains, that road is always under, isn't it?

    Turkey eggs are here! 6 blue Slate, 6 bourbon red. I'm setting them Saturday. I'll candle tonight to make sure everything is good after their journey.

    I know nothing about turkeys.

    She told me she is still thinking about it. I think she needs an ES, lol. Maggie did her best to show MCC how nice ES are with chickens, and Whiskey majorly sucked up to her husband. Since you live close to her, it's time for Mindy to step in and seal the deal. [​IMG]
