@sunflour Actually this year it hasn't been that bad...comparatively. ;) We've had hardly any snow and the temperatures have been mostly 25-40! That's unheard of up here. My friends back in Colorado complain because it's been colder and snowier for them!
Thanks for understanding. Even though they're essentially farm animals and we use them for eggs, we're animal people and they're also our pets. People couldn't believe we went to the expense of hauling them all the way up here through Canada, but our view is that you make an investment and a commitment to an animal, and you stick by it.
@enola The vet gave us Albon. Is that a good choice? I know it may not treat all strains of cocci. We're limited on vet support up here. This one is a traveling vet that goes all around the state and is the only person the regular vets recommend as having experience with chickens.
