anyone use a microscope to check their birds droppings, if so how did you learn what to look for and do you think it is worth doing your self...?

Like I said I have a colour chart which shows what to look for c occi . Canker . Worms and worm eggs . And yeast .anymore than that you got problems . And need a vet and that costs money. Cheaper to breed another .

Must admit I fancy getting one myself but the good ones are a bit expensive. Then again getting one will save money in the long term

We have a Brunel Microscope I bought direct from Brunel Microscopes LTD

Address:-  Unit 12, Enterprise Centre, Bumpers Way, Bumpers Industrial Estate, Chippenham, 
Wilts. SN14 6QA.  Tel. 01249 462655.  Website www.brunelmicroscopes.co.uk

We went over to their unit one day and bought it off the shelf.

It comes in a solid wooden box, with 3 different lenses and everything you could want. 

The one we have is something like their SP20 Microscope.  Follow this link:-
http://www.brunelmicroscopes.co.uk/coccidiosis.html


It is now just under £110 which is a very good price for what you get.


Edgie - can you please send me the coloured  chart you have - or tell me where I can get one from.


As for learning how to use a microscope - as Edgie says - it is not hard.  I found out how to use ours, from Brunels, but that was in the days before the INTERNET - yes I can remember the days before there were computers in every house.


I trust this helps.  If you need any more help, just ask.


Have a good one!

I have just found this - not had time to read it all, but it looks interesting.
