This is a mem­ber of the gin­ger fam­ily ( Cur­cuma longa) and can be added to feed. It is anti-in­flam­ma­tory, anti-bac­te­rial, and im­proves growth and egg pro­duc­tion.

It can also be used as a paste on wounds or on a bum­ble­foot in­fec­tion once it is opened up.

Dose: mix turmeric pow­der with co­conut oil and black pep­per (both help to ac­ti­vate the ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties of turmeric) and of­fer to birds in a dish. Mix turmeric pow­der with honey or petroleum jelly to ap­ply to wounds.
