how old can we deworm our birds
It depends.. some people deworm broilers at 4 weeks+ and layers every 2 months.

yes it can. use a measuring cup and pour the powder to the level you want. let's say you have a 100ml measuring container and you pour the powder until it reaches the 30ml mark. that's 30ml of paw paw seed powder.

Getting ready to receive your birds.

- Ensure the brooder is ready.
- Provide source of heat
- Get your feed and feeder ready
-- Good source of water and water troughs
- Get your herbs ready.

*When they arrive*

- Put on the source of heat to about 30 to 35 degree Celsius.

- Weigh the carton and divide by the number of birds in order to get the approximate weight of each bird at day old. Record this and any other data.

- Pick the bird one by one, check the navel. If not properly closed, apply aloe vera and honey. Put them on the litter.
Tag the weak ones for proper monitoring.

- serve them feed and water. Ginger, garlic and aloe vera are ok in water.
But for those ones that are weak, prepare extracts of Basil, use syringe to administer to them in conjunction with garlic, ginger and aloe vera.



pls how does the basil look like and where can i get it?

I know too well about measurements but in this case the measurement is different in other to get the most potent solution. you can google it to get a different measurement but this works for me. Cheers.

Pls when deworming the birds do we need to give them the ginger, garlic and alovera mixture together with the deworming mixture?

Some people do but I'd advice you don't mix.
Re: My Poultry Feed Formulation Experiment On Broilers. by ray2gud: 9:21pm On Aug 01, 2017
Thanks bro. Meaning I should just give them the mixture alone for that whole day

Yes the mixture is for prevention of those diseases and from week 2 you could add Bitterleaf twice a week.

Also, To improve the gut health of your birds I'd advice you use lactobasillus. you either add it to their water (for layers) or for fermenting feed for your broilers. What it does is that it predigests the feed breaking it down to its simplest forms so your FCR is boosted which means bigger and heavier birds. I didn't use it because it would interfere with my feed experiment.

That's a classic symptom of coccidiosis. Bitterleaf, garlic and Ginger mixture would do the trick. you can add aloe vera to the mixture if you have access to it. Cheers.

Day 10. Birds are self sufficient as regards to heat. I've removed the papers and only use the rice hulls. yesterday was fresh water day. Today resumed with the normal ginger, garlic and aloe vera concoction. no sickness no death. Bio-security is strong.

How many days should I use the paper before changing to Wood scrapings (saw dust) and how often should I change the papers?

Also, what preparations should I make in the pen before the arrival of the chucks aside from the bedding and lights for them?

Is there any form of disinfecting exercise I should carry out?

For disinfecting mix white vinegar and lime and spray in the pen. allow a week or so and it's done.

I'm no expert but this looks like either NCD or Mereks disease (Range Paralysis) and it's far advanced.

as you make use of organic herbs for prevention and treatment of disease, is there any negative effects in combination of Organic and inorganic (drugs) for treatment of disease and general health of the birds
