    Hmm maybe try a vitimin powder in their water , usually when i think my chickens have any type of respiratory issues or cold i just add some apple cidar vinegar in their water too , idk if that will help ur little guys out or not but wouldn't hurt them to try

    I had a lethargic chick once and it was recommended that I put a shot of Apple cider vinegar in their water (ACV with mother) we did that for 3-4 days and all my chicks seemed to do better afterwards. Could just be coincidence

    I use wazine, becuase it was recommended by the old timers, on the other hand I use pumpkin as a natural de wormer in the fall, so that's a plus.

    X2 on the pumpkin and they love it! I just busted a couple in half and let them have em. They love picking the seeds and when they were done there was nothing but a thin skin remaining, and that went to the compost pile in my garden.

    I got the seeds this year from some specialty pumpkin kinds, like red, blue, warty, and others... I grew a 80lb one the first year, and this year nothing, so next year I will be putting out about 500 plants, 200 pumpkin and 300 sunflower, and of course strawberries, raspberries, grapes, mint, and of course blueberries!!! I love my gardening... But ya I heard you can eat the eggs after deworming, but I wonder what effects it does with incubating the eggs.[​IMG]

    I'm glad you got your quail eggs! [​IMG]

    Maybe they'll deliver the box of chickens and it will be full of freshly hatched, healthy little chicks. (one can always dream, right? Lol) [​IMG]

    Welcome! So glad you could join!

    Chocolate orpingtons sound awesome! Some day I want some of the rarer colors of orpingtons too.

    The only good thing about an aggressive roo is that you don't feel bad processing them.
