We have just had 765mm rainfall within 30 hours (late Fri night to early Sun morning) so everything here is pretty soaked. Just a reminder to those copping/copped the east coast low that it may be a good idea to give ACV in water until things dry up, then do a preventative cocci drench with Baycox.

We're fine thanks. Others copped it far worse than us. We live on a ridge & usually get cut off for a day or 2 when these storms happen but don't really care as long as the family is safe, we have food & dry firewood. At least the tanks are all full now. Forecast to get to 28 deg again in the next couple of days here - that'll dry things up a bit.

I don't really measure it out - I just put a splash into the watering can (very scientific). I've heard of others using up to 20ml/litre. I think 5 - 10 ml is good. More than that it really starts to taint the flavour of the water.

Do you dose your birds every time the aviary floor gets wet?
