Turmeric is sold as a immune system booster for poultry. Instructions read " give no more than 1/2 % of total feed ration" What the heck would be 1/2 % of, let's say, a standard sized feed scoop? I also have read that Turmeric is useful as an anti-inflammatory agent for tendinitis and related conditions in people, and I wondered if anyone has tried this on poultry? I am about to, we have a bantam hen who has a slight (permanent) limp, and I want to see if it will help her..one of our peacocks has also developed a limp, I think he has sprained something. My reasoning is, I can give it to the whole flock, and it might help those two also, before I have to resort to confining them.
