    GIVE YOUR BIRDS A TREAT AT NIGHT

    Call your birds at the same time every night to give them a treat of an egg cup sized amount of mixed corn, and this will maintain their warmth overnight in winter and get them into a routine of coming when called.

    INTRODUCING NEW BIRDS TO THE FLOCK

    To introduce new birds to the flock, after all normal health checks, and using Nettex Total Mite Kill Powder on the birds, house them in the same area as your existing flock, but in a separate run so they can become accustomed to each other for at least 5 days.  Then add the new birds into the house after the birds have roosted at night.
