broad spectrum antibiotics?
Broad spectrum antibiotics treat 2 or more types of diseases/infections, instead of targeting just one type as some antibiotics do.
So how would i go about giving it to my chickens?
How old are your chickens and what are their symptoms? How long has it been going on etc...?
My chicks are 2 months. Someone said i will want to give it to them before i add in more chickens?
Dont give your birds antibiotics "just because." Do not add new chickens to an existing flock, quarantine the new birds for at least 6 weeks away from your old flock. This will give you time to observe the newbies for any signs of diseases and parasites. Think biosecurity.
I will be getting these as babies and will be watching them for about a month
