Hi There, I just had a friend over to show his daughter my newly arrived chicks. They are in the brooder and are all less than 2 weeks old. He asked me why I did not put some of the hens manure in with the chicks. Why would I do that? He says that he has been told that the hens manure will act as an antibiotic for the baby chicks. Has anybody out there ever heard of this? Thanks.
