Quote:Yep, that was my point - everything "bad" becomes resistant at some point. So how do you keep up if you go that route? I don't worm; don't use pesticides or poisons or chemicals on anything on my farm (animals or crops); don't bleach things; don't vaccinate; don't use anitibiotics, and - I don't have any sick birds. DH and I are at the feed stores and co-ops around this area almost daily. Our farm is open for tours to everyone, including those coming to buy chickens who could, theoretically contaminate my birds. I use the Joel Salatin approach which, so far, works for me and my animals. We had a small tour group here the other day with some kids in it. They were petting the goats when one pooped. The kids first asked what that was coming out of the goat and about the time I said "it's poop", the ducks ran up and ate it. So then they said "yuck, they're eating it". I explained, "yes, they were cleaning it up". Their mom spoke up and said "As God intended."
