    Please help! Salmonella has struck and this seasons ducklings are dropping like flies. Our ducks, chickens and quail have contracted it. My 2 baby quail Kiwi and Fluffy died and so did one of my males ice-cream. The ducks and chickens are a little sick. The vet reccomends kill everything and start again. I have been boiling water and then cooling it for my quail. But the ducks just keep dying.

    I agree. Why can't your vet prescribe an antibiotic for your flocks? I would demand it.
