    Does anyone know if there is pet insurance for chickens? I saw that nationwide has bird insurance but does anyone know if that includes chickens?

    The only way to find out if Nationwide's pet insurance covers chickens, is to contact them directly:)
    Let us know what you find out.

    You also need to make sure your vet is a participating vet in whatever insurance you decide on. Just like human Dr.s, they are not obligated to accept any insurance plan. Pet Assure covers any pet (25% discount at participating veterinarians). You need to really read the fine print with any plan and make sure you understand what you are getting. Make sure what they define as a pet vs livestock. Some are quite expensive and have a lot of exclusions, the exclusions can be costly.
