    Just wondering what I should do for basic medical care for my Flock, Do I need to give them meds or do anything special as long as they arent sick or hurt? Thanks

    ? Nope. Keep the coop relatively clean, dry and predator proof.... Avoid serious overcrowding. Feed them good feed and greens if you can, and they pretty much are bullet-proof. Treat anyone that gets sick/hurt promptly of course, but other than that just enjoy them.
