In the Brooder
- Oct 12, 2010
After reading all the posts about biosecurity/quarantine/diseases; it makes me wonder about how strong chicken's immune systems are. I mean, do chickens regularly get colds like we do, and then eventually get over them as long as they are not stressed? Or is every chicken that gets an infection at risk of dying with no intervention? Many times it seems like use (or rather misuse) of antibiotics can cause additional problems that compound the situation. Any thoughts?
