    found this online thought that some may be interested or may even have it even know something of those authors I am very interested in it. but wont help me if I cant understand the terminology im looking for a used hopefully cheaper book. I know this isn't a place to advertise it but figured its the best spot to introduce it to others since its on what everyone is asking for help with.

    Yeah im familiar with it bee to it also. I was curious because the title is stating backyard chicken.. where I have noted on Mercks is most familiar with large scale type operations and some of the things they notice is usually after the animals are dead. I am hopping for info that covers that as a secondary option if the most common and speratic things hopping it would cover more common problems with free range chicken diseases and symptoms.. a book that covers what we all on here see almost all the times to help pin point problems better. We dont run the big over crowded chicken battery cages. Er most of us wouldn't.
    You know what would be really great? If we had a program that took our description of symptoms and would give the closest possible answers would be cool.
