    I am half PA Dutch. My father never taught us a word. He spoke it, but never told us what he was saying. My aunt (the one living in Reading, that I REALLY wanted her farm) passed before I could grill her for answers.
    Anyone know Paul or David Heifer?

    I would try a child's dose of Pepto. It is the only safe anti-diarheal for animals. Assuming she is at least 4#.
    Saltines can help too. That is all I got for ya.[​IMG]

    Nigerian Dwarf Goaties, LOVE them! We are planning on breeding them for a May kidding, babies should be ready in July. We got 3 papered ND from 3 seperate lines to keep our herd gene pool diverse. We plan to breed them to 3 different bucks to really mix things up.

    Sally, I THINK I read somewhere that powdered milk is good for chicken loose stool.

    Mother Earth News
    "Among the actual diseases that infect domestic fowl, diarrhea is the most common. This condition-revealed by white or greenish, loose droppings-can be caused by cold, dampness, dirty surroundings and unclean food. Isolate the patient in warm, dry quarters and give her potassium permanganate solution to drink. To make this remedy, dissolve one tablespoon of the chemical in one quart of warm water. Then, for each bird, take one tablespoon of this concentrated solution and further dissolve it in one cup of warm water. In severe cases use a stronger solution, potent enough to turn a dipped finger slightly brown. (Don't keep potassium permanganate mixture in a metal container.)

    Another remedy for diarrhea is Epsom salts in the feed, half a pound per 100 birds or 1/2 teaspoon each. Then feed the sick chickens wheat bran moistened with sour milk or buttermilk."
