  • For poultry owners, scouting for parasites is an important management practice for the flock. Let us take a closer look at a variety of parasites that can attack poultry by either sucking blood or feeding on skin and feathers.

    Northern fowl mite:  The most common external parasites in chickens, turkeys, game birds, pigeons etc. are northern fowl mites. Spread through bird contact, signs of infestation depend on severity.  Chickens may lose weight, exhibit decreased feed intake and egg production, or become anemic.

  • Prayer is the life of the soul.

    Food and rest are essential to sustain human life; knowledge, art, and culture in general enrich the mental capabilities of men, but only prayer reveals and expands our spiritual faculties.

    God loves all of his creation, and in particular he loves each of us.  As it is natural for a child to want to see and converse with their parents, so it should also be natural and pleasant for us to converse with our Heavenly Father and to want to be in spiritual communion with him.

    This conversation with God is called prayer.
