In spite of our efforts, keeping a flock completely healthy and disease free long term is unfortunately very difficult, if not near impossible. But there are a few things we can do to help reduce the risks of disease outbreaks and health problems in our flocks. This week I would like to hear you all's practices when it comes to keeping your flocks healthy. Specifically:
- Supplements (natural or other), feeding, etc for boosting immune systems and preventing diseases.
- Living conditions, husbandry practices, etc to help prevent disease outbreaks.
- Breeding for disease resistance.
