    Other things that come into play that you didn't say--are you doing it yourself or paying someone to do it all, and do you need it all done at once? And also what type of everything do you want. ...

    LOL Didn't mean to overwhelm with the numbers. I keep track of Calcium levels and pH levels with milk testing. Just hadn't heard of the pH levels going back UP after having started going DOWN.

    I was always against feeding them for no reason other than "they are birdfood" at first, then learned about the inflammatory aspects. I was thoroughly surprised to open a bag from my most recent...
