    I have raised chicken for several decades as believed a healthy chicken is a additive to the flock.
    I want to give you my recipe for a wet mash

    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR A SINGLE CHICKEN
    IF CHICKEN IS MOULTING AND IS STRESSED DO THIS FOR ITS HEALTH:
    ALSO IF TREATING SICK CHICKS OR ADULTS
    IE: WORMING, ANY TYPE DISEASE OR COCCIDIOSIS ETC:
    ...
    Glenda Heywood now the
    natural probiotic recipe is this:
    1 qt of dry crumbles
    2 qts of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good.
    do not make sloopy JUST WET AND CHICKENS WILL EAT IT BETTER
    chickens do not like sloppy feed AS IT STICKS ON THEIR BEAKS.

    ADULT CHICKENS
    NOW THE IMPORTANT INGRIEDIENT FOR EACH CHICKEN FED
    and add 1- 400 mg of Vit E (PER CHICKEN FED WET MASH PROBIOTIC MIXTURE) by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chicken fed this wet mash
    putting the vitamin E in the wet mash and mix wet mash good to get vitamin E in every chickens amount
    this for each chicken your treating
    so for each chicken use 4 tsp of mixture and 1-400 mg of Vit E
    twice a day for them till the birds feathers are grown out then just three times a week feed wet mash and cut back on the vitamin E to 400 mg once a week
    and feed each chicken
    4 tsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles
    IE: or each chicken your making wet mash probiotic for
    DO THIS
    4 tsp of feed and 1 tsp of the yoguart and just enough milk to mix it good not sloppy wet. And add the 400 mg Vitamin E once a week if not sick
    IF SICK feed 1-2 vit E 400 mg twice a day per chicken that is sick

    CHICKS RECIPE:
    DO THIS
    IF CHICKS ARE SICK add a 1000 mg vitamin E ONCE A DAY TO THE ABOVE: ie: 1 QT OF CRUMBLES AND 2 QTS OF SOME KIND OF MILK AND 1/4 CUP PLAIN YOGUART
    (this is for any and all kinds of sickness )
    ALSO IF TREATING CHICKENS WHO ARE SICK
    DO NOT put Apple Cider Vinegar in the water while giving medication
    OTHER WISE use 2 tabelspoons of ACV to the gallon when not feeding medication

    Here is another use for the we mash probiotc recipe when chicken have coccidiosis

    INFORMATION ON SULMET FOR COCCIDIOSIS
    Glenda Heywood
    you need to have a vet explain it to you
    I have a friend Nathalie Ross who gave this explanation

    I would put them on 7 days of sulmet in the water
    for the coccidiosis now that you have it

    Nathalie's explanation of sulmet is
    Sulmet is sulfamethazine.
    Sulmet is used for treatment against bacterial scours in cattle, which just happens to be E. coli.
    It also is used against Coryza, Pastuerella, and Salmonella Pullorum in poultry.
    It's an old fashioned sulfur drug, very broad spectrum, safe for babies, easy to give.
    then give them the wet mash probiotic so they can make good gut flora

    Glenda Heywood
    Here is the way I would use and have used sulmet for coccidiosis

    Now what to do and what to feed after medicating for coccidiosis
    to make sure they eat the medicated wet mash do this first and second day of treating and medication in the water 7 days
    also I use the wet mash with sulmet or corid
    2 tbsp of dry crumbles(chicken mash)
    4 tbsp of water
    1 tsp of sulmet add to the water
    if using corid
    2 tbsp of dry mash
    4 tbsp of water
    add 2 tbsp of corid 9.6% to the water
    feed 2 tsp per chicken for a feeding
    feed this two mornings to get the medication in the birds
    also at same time put the corid or sulmet in the drinking water for 7 days
    speckled hen gives corid(9.6%) liquid in 3-4 tbsp per gallon of water
    and after medicating give the following things
    either the corid amproylium or the sulmet will work but now you have a difficient gut problem with the E.coli

    and it needs to have the Vitamin E put in the wet mash probiotic to help the E.coli gut problem
    do this
    now the
    natural probiotic recipe is is:
    1 qt of dry crumbles
    2 qts of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good
    NOW THE IMPORTANT INGRIEDIENT FOR EACH CHICK FED
    and add 1- 1000 mg of Vit E by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chick fed this wet mash
    putting it in the wet mash
    this for each chick your treating
    so for each chick use 2 tsp of mixture and 1-1000 mg of Vit E
    twice a day for them till the manure is solid

    and feed each chick
    2 tsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles
    do this twice a day for a week
    till the chicks manure is right
    then quit the Vit E and selinium make just the wet mash probiotic
    then once a week for life

    All the while after medicating the birds use
    do not use ACV with medication
    2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated

    they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
    then three days a week after they are over coccidiosis
