Eily’s Report – 18th May

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

Many thanks to all those who reacted to my report last week. It’s great to feel that you are all out there. Joseph Booth all the way from WA, to our own  Mick O Connor and lots of others in between. Mick’s contribution to my story about the dandelions did a lot to jog my memory even further of it’s uses and the other ingredients that the women used in order to keep the life in the young chicks in the springtime of the year. As he said the mix comprised of  dandelions, young  nettles and hardboiled eggs, all finely chopped and fed to the baby fowl as a cure for the pip. The pip was the enemy of all young chicks and a nightmare for those hoping to rear them. But what was the Pip? It was some sort of worm that settled in the throat or windpipe of baby chicks and baby turkeys. It was easy to spot because it caused them to force open their little beaks in a sort of yawning or vomiting movement and the continuous action prevented them from taking any food or drink, needless to say they soon weakened away and died. Losing hen chicks was bad enough  but  losing turkey chicks was a disaster. Hens lay and hatch the whole year round and there was an all year market for their produce but not so with the precious turkeys they produced eggs in the Spring and  hatched their young and had only one time of year for there product to be sold, which of course the Christmas trade.  So the efforts to save the turkey chicks was paramount. Everywhere that women met in the Springtime of the year, sooner or later the pip came up in the conversation. Another method they used was to stand  the affected little bird into the top of a bag of white lime and  gently shake it so that it would inhale the lime dust which would  kill the offending grub  in it’s airways.  Some women even tried to snare the grub with a strand of horsehair bent into a loop and ever so gently fishing it out and often with average success. When these measures worked there was a real atmosphere of success and a sharing among others but alas when it didn’t, that was a different story.  It’s a long time now since I left the farmyard and I wonder is the Pip ever heard of today.
