I’m sitting here listening to the chicks hatching in the incubator. They’re so lively so quick! We’ve got meat chicks in the brooder already, too. Spring is here!

New to chickens, or looking to improve what you’re doing?

I was talking this week with a friend who’s raised chickens for years very successfully. They’re beautiful birds. AND, she uses a good deal of Corid every spring when she moves them from the brooder to the chicken tractors in the yard. Why?

Coccidia.

It’s the bane of all farmers sooner of later. The coddicia protozoa is a little parasitic being that lives in the soil inderterminately (a.k.a. nearly forever) and can wreak havoc on young animals intestines. We’ve had in goats and chickens so far. The only cure known to conventional ag is a product called Corid that acts like a wormer medicine to get the animal through it’s vulnerable stage.

What conventional ag and my very experienced friend don’t know about is BIOCHAR

We replaced gallons of Corid with a bit of biochar sprinkled on the chickens’ feed daily. Biochar is like activated charcoal and helps bind the protozoa and escort it to the exit. Sometimes we innoculate it with compost and it unloads beneficial bacterias at the same time. For our naturally immune deficient meat birds, it also shaves 1-2 weeks off our finishing time. Who doesn’t want that?? My friend, for one, has signed up.
