Hi Mark,

I've got the Alanna Moore book - and have copied the description from one of the wholistic sites for your info. It retails around the $35 - 40 mark. Lots of natural remedies etc including use of herbs to treat ailments. My only problem is there is little information on dosage rates or how much of any particular herb to feed.

BACKYARD POULTRY NATURALLY - 2ND EDITION (Book)
Alanna Moore
Release Date: March 2008
Format: Paperback Pages: 154
ISBN: 9780958559010

What's the difference betweeen a Frizzle and a Fav? A Pekin and a Polish? A Welsummer and a Wyandotte? How do you successfully determine the sex of day old chickens? What natural products can be used to treat lice infestations? And what should you do if a broody hen won't get off the nest to feed?
Backyard Poultry - Naturally answers all these questions and more. From housing to feeding, from selection to breeding, from pets to production, and from the best lookers to the best layers, the book covers everything the backyard farmer needs to know about poultry husbandry - including preventative and curative herbal medicines and homeopathics, plus permaculture design for productive poultry pens.
Backyard Poultry - Naturally is an excellent resource. It is entertaining and informative and will appeal to amateur and avid poultry farmers alike. Author Alanna Moore has taken her own extensive experience of natural healing and poultry care and used it to produce a very compact and readable reference. It is Australia's bestselling 'chook book' - all the natural management and health tips required for happy poultry are found in this one comprehensive and highly acclaimed book.

"A wonderful resource! Alanna Moore has provided poultry enthusiasts with all the information they need to raise healthy poultry without using harmful chemicals." ? Megg Miller, Grass Roots magazine

"The poultry health section is the best I've seen." ? Eve Sinton, Permaculture International Journal

"An interesting and worthwhile book that will no doubt have a lot of appeal for the amateur or part-time farmer." Kerry Lonergan, 'Landline', ABC TV

Hope this answers your request... Heather

Hi Mark,

There are a lot of people on this site that know a great deal of home remedies and have lots of experience.
So if you are after something specific, or more detail from something you have read, then try popping a question on here.

I agree with Heathers summary of Allanah Moore's book.
There is also a good one available on eBay, with some more 'specifics' "Natural Remedies for Poultry".

And there are lots more out there... do a google search... or even have a look through a second hand book store - there's often some 'oldies but goodies'.

Always though, if you are unsure... check it out. Ask on here and someone will come to your aid. Home remedies may sound simplest, but this does not always mean they are best.

Cheers.

Hi Sammiz
I just think its hard to determine a prognosis by asking a question on byp but here goes:

A bantam rooster, one day he was fine then the next day he is off balance and isn't drinking or eating, feathers ruffled and looks sick. What can I do?
Thanks
mark
