    It's like vicks for chickens but it has things in it that a few members here don't like.

    Some use is for respiratory problems. I use it for pickers. I put it on the bird being
    picked and the taste and smell keeps the pickers away.

    Camphor is the chemical that a few here don't like. It is somewhat toxic.

    I think so. Certainly seemed to help us breath easier, and we're all crazy LOL LOL
