Hi kevin, just to let you know I give my gang of 14 cod liver oil , when I give them there spaghetti in the morning they go mad it good for there feathers and there joints, mind you they;ve taken up swimming which is a bit of a worry must be the fish in them !!! (only joking about the swimming ) cheers clare
funnily enough we have 14 hens together in one area. And also another 3 in with "Bernie" our cockeral in another pen.
Just one question....if you have the time to answer....How much cod liver oil roughly do give to your gang of 14. I have a 300ml bottle of the stuff and am not sure whether to just give the lot to them or is there an amount per hen I should allow for????
Hi kelvin , good to hear from you. I put around about 2 capfulls to around a pound of feed sorry not to be sp specific ,i just go off the consistency, I have the same problem when worming i'm never quite sure how much FLUBENVET to put in there feed.I wonder if i could pick your brains.You say you also have a cockeral ,do you have any problems with him hurting the girls when he's treading them as I have two of the girls refusing to come out of the house because he is si vicious with them they are covered in cuts and one is limping badly i tried to segregate the girls and have built a little pen and seperate house but they just keep going back to the coop any help would be appreciated as i don;t want to part with the two hens or samson .I looki forward to your reply cheers
