Only been in the house since October, so I'm liking my progress so far!
Have a great day everyone! Chad
I have to admire people who put so much work into a rental property. Normally they tend to destroy property rather than improve it.

I'm so sorry. That's terrible.
One of my older chickens are sneezing. Could it have gotten Coccosidis? I try really hard to wash my hands each time I moved from the chicks to my flock, but could they get it if it was on my clothes or something?
If it's an older chicken it probably has caught some kind of respiratory thing. You bought Tylan didn't you? Make sure it's not an allergy and if not give it tylan again. You are really getting an experience here. So have you considered going to college and becoming a vet who also treats birds? You are a perfect example of why we need some around here. Your own experience would help you become a success. I know it's a few years off but you should consider it.
So I got a message today while I was gone that 15 Speckled Sussex I sold were all roosters. These were picked up and hatched in January. I just sold them straight run. There is no way that could be the case because I accidentally gave them a partridge orpington in place of a sussex and the picture I saw at about 6 weeks proved it was a female. I swear I try so hard to breed the best and do every thing honest and by the book. But yet I still end up with people who say things like that. I have never cheated any one or misrepresented what I sold. I just don't see how the luck of the draw could result in 15 chicks hatched at the same time being all roosters.
I'm about to give up.
People know I will make anything right so sometimes I think they take advantage of me. Kind of like stealing livestock in a different way.
