    Wildfires and my Ducks

    Hi All, So- in my state there are a few pretty harsh wildfires going on. Not near enough to me that we are in imminent danger or needing to evacuate, but the smoke is terrible.

I’ve been out every day in makeshift smoke & particulate gear to clean cages and refresh everyone’s...

    Smoke Inhalation?

    Hello. Currently, there is a massive fire about 15 miles away from where I live, so it's very smokey and very hot. My little cochin hen (she's 4 months old) started wheezing yesterday afternoon. I would have posted sooner, but both power and internet went out and internet didn't come back until...
