Over the years I have dealt with a wide variety of chicken ailments. From the mild to the morose, I’ve read through every corner of the internet I could find while constructing my own treatment plans for the surprises that constantly await a backyard poultry keeper. When I am considering a treatment option, I always make sure the route I select is going to be as painless and ethical as possible. As most of you know, my girls are purely pets- I don’t even eat their eggs. You can count on the treatment recommendations you’ll find here to be humane, not above the skill level of an average chicken keeper, and as simple as is possible. As I learn more, I will update and expand this section.
