    Thanks in advance!
    I need a recommendation on a good health care book for my girls, preferably one with holistic and "organic" treatments. Tired of feeling so helpless when something goes wrong!

    I haven't seen a definitive book on chicken care, but Gail Damerow's book, Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens is very thorough, but pretty lean on specific health issues. The best info has come from this forum. Regular reading alerted me to our egg bound chicken and ways to help the hen heal.
