Countrywide and other places that sell livestock stuff - it's a staple part of the horsey set's feedstuff!

Even Pets R US (Indoors?) might have some as they now do both horses and chickens (very limited)

If your chickens are at present healthy and on good layers meal/pellets/grit and healthy treats they really don't need anything else. It's a bit like a person who is on a very healthy diet, eating all the right foods getting lots of vitamins etc from the food and then taking a vitmain supplement....complete waste...

Thanks for that!

I've put a garlic clove in the water, cos it seemed the right thing to do, and I have poultry tonic, I haven't opened it I bought it 'just in case', and I was wondering about vinegar!

I think I shall try and relax, let them get on with it!

Hopefully I shall quit being a 'newbie' soon :-D

None of us will ever quit being a "newbie" because of all the new things coming out all the time.

If my hens need a particular thing for a reason ie: like worming, then I will buy worming stuff but they are on good food, plenty of space so why spend money on unnecessary things.
