**Disclaimer: I am not a Scientist or a Veterinarian, so always check your Vet first. This is just what we do on our farm & homestead…always use your best judgement for your homestead.**
We try to raise our livestock animals(chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks, pigs) as natural & as organic as we can. We try to avoid any chemical or antibiotics, as much as we can, so this is what we do around on our little farm & homestead.
-I add Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE), to all my feeds…1 lb per 50 lbs of feed. I also spread Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) around my coops & dust bath spots & also I will dust my chickens with Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) from time to time as well…because it will kill mites & lice!
-Whenever I can get pumpkins, I get them…we ask schools, other farms, all our friends & family, churches, & grocery stores, to call us whenever they have leftover pumpkins from the holidays..you will be surprised as to how many pumpkins you can find…for FREE!
Pumpkins or the pumpkin seeds have a natural amino acid that paralyzes worms & parasites, & so anytime you can feed your livestock, chickens, goats, pigs, & poultry pumpkins…do it, bc it is a great natural dewormer.
Also not only are pumpkins & pumpkin seeds a great dewormer, they ar slap full of Vitamins, mainly A, E, & C…plus it is full of antioxidants & beta carotene!!
-I add Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) to all my waterers just about every day, along with waterers that do not have any apple cider vinegar, so the animals can have both fresh water, with or without apple cider vinegar.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), is great for the chickens immune system & their digestive system. It is a natural & organic antibiotic & antiseptic.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a germ killer, & parasites & germs just do not like Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
Also Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is just slap full of Vitamins, minerals & trace elements!
I hope this helps the next time you are worming your livestock or worming your chickens or worming your pigs!
