Hello- My birds have a week left before slaughter, and I'm seeing quite a bit of runny poo. Any home remedy tips I should try that will leave them unmedicated for slaughter, but still make sure I don't lose any before then? Thought I remembered something about milk and something else about apple cider vinegar, but wasn't sure exactly how to go about either. Also- how do you weigh your chickens? I'm thinking of doing my roos this weekend (it will be 8 weeks and they LOOK pretty big, but I'm not positive,) then waiting a week on the hens. Are you using a poultry scale or is there an easy "home" method to get a bearing on weight. I'm sure when you've been doing it awhile, you just "know" but this is my first batch. Lastly, how do you grab and catch them when fully grown? I have a tractor, and getting them near the door is it's own problem, but I tried to pick up a roo yesterday to get a bearing on his size, but when I was able to catch him, he flapped so much I couldn't hold him without worrying risking hurting him. Any tips here on picking up/carrying? Are you doing it by the feet?? Haha, it was a lot easier when I could get my hands around them and they were lighter! Thanks!
