    I like the lay out and the photos. Well, I don't actually like all the photos, eew, but you know what i mean!
    I would only add that in addition to the daily soaks and cleaning, that should be followed up with an antifungal ointment to speed recovery.
    I haven't researched this but would converting the chickens diet over to fermented also be a preventive method?
    The article is sound advice. Thank you for sharing it.

    Article could be updated to reflect research on ACV effectiveness.
