theres different types of copper sulfate. what type is to be used?
I'd like to know what to use too. Do you have to use acidified copper sulfate, or is regular copper sulfate ok. So far, the only thing I can find here in Oriental Mindoro is Ornistat (by Excellence) which has some copper in it...but I'd rather find pure copper sulfate to just add every month or two.
i have used copper sulfate, or blue stone for over 20 years, i put the content in a gal of water for stock soulation, i run 1/4 tesp, to a gal 365 days a year, in other words it stays on my fowl,better feed comsumtion. its good if their are a certain grain or pellet that tey won"t eat, this works.
bump this up! aside from canker is this stuff good for anything else?
i use it atleast twice a week. seems to keep birds cleaned out good also. i have taken bleach on rubbed on cancer in mouth also and worked for me...
So is this good? would this do te job??? (the product frome the link)
Another thing is i feed super spur in a 10% mix with complete feed every day, and this has copper on it also i use red cell and rooster booster some times and as you all probably know this product's have cooper, so why isn't it working, is it a different type?? because i have the greens or mud fever i've tried the BMD, Sulfatec, dewormers, and even sulfas, and some other things i don't remember (some were cure, some not, some that were cured went to do it again), and many things so i'm about to try the copper sulfate, but i saw that a lot of things i use have copper on them, so is the sulfate different??
the link bamaokie gave is the right stuff. It must be acidified or you have to add vinegar too. Sid said it right about the solution and dosage. Fowl drinking out of algefilled cups will drop little pencil shaped droppings eventually.This is bad. Copper sulfate in the water a couple days will fluff the droppings up. A fowl's crop, gizzard, and intestines can harbor this algae and they will never have peak health until this condition is cleared up. One of the main reasons their heads don't redden up and get the little "strawberries" all over it. Basic things= eleminating about 80% of meds. How you gonna condition birds when they are full of so called little secrets?
