dose any body worm there birds ?if so when, what are you using and how old when this is done.
I've been putting DE in my bird's food and their dust bath. That's the extent of worming I've done.
DE explain please
DE = diatomaceous earth.
where can you get this DE ??
Check your local feed, garden or pet stores. It is available online at gardening sites and also at Amazon.
I thought DE is more for external parasites...
DE should do both parasites and deworm. I've also been putting cayenne in their feed to prevent blackhead. Chickens used to live on the property.
I'm probably being over paranoid, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
and how much of this de do you give your birds??
When I refill their feed container I put in maybe 3 Tablespoons or a 1/4 c. worth. I don't do it every single time, but at least every other.
