Quote:I realize that the meds they used to use were harmful to ducks. I guess by urban legend I meant that it's something that even tho once true, it no longer is. Amprol is more of a preventative than a medication. It helps the chicks and ducklings develop an "immunity" to whatever kind of coccidia is in the soil where they are being raised without their system being overwhelmed by it. I don't use meds either.....have never used any antibiotics in my flock in all the years I've had them.
