    Please remember that Indiana thread members are not avian health care professionals. We can learn from each other's real-life experiences, but we also recommend consulting online sources from reputable sites. Additionally, it's helpful to own a book solely about chicken health issues for quick reference. After reading information, it's up to you to determine what to do next, whether you want to try a remedy or consult with an avian veterinarian first.

    About Author

    I am retired early to take care of my 80+yr old parents full time. Both heart and diabetes patients, Moms a cancer survivor as well. DH and I sold our home, and built on an "1800 SQ FT addition" onto their home to have privacy but allow immediate care when needed.
    5 acres here, and very lush, healthy green former pasture. My SIL asked me one day, do you want chickens? I blurted out YES and my DH about fainted! From there we have evolved to a working farm.

    My sister-in-law and I are looking for BYC folks near Columbia City, Churubusco area where we could visit your operations and ask questions as she plans her coop , brooder, and nesting areas. ( Like how do you insulate and so many other things.)

    O and maybe it would be easier for newbies to list out mine...instead of BCM list as Black Copper Marans.
    BCM = Black Copper Marans; GCM = Golden Cuckoo Marans; SLW = Silver Laced Wyandotte; SF = Salmon Faverolles; BA = Black Australorp.. ooops and noticed I left out the Blue Copper Marans

    Would someone mind updating our members list for me? I have added Naked Necks to my flock. Also all are LF except the silkies, sizzles and cochins are all bantam. Thanks!! Great Job on all the work you do here!

    We will list any type of bird. I'll get you added asap.

    I only have Ringneck doves, diamond doves and parakeets for now. Can you list these or does it have to be chickens, ducks or peafowl?
  15. CluckAcres
    And it can only get better.
