Is there a recommended book on chickens health? My chicken sits alot even when the dog comes around she wont move. She has runny stuff coming out of her behind and my son says there is something orange in there.
Good references, thanks.A lot of information is free for the taking if you learn what diseases are common in chickens and poultry. BYC has a search at the top of this page that contains thousands of threads, and Google contains quite a few university and professional sites to look up information about conditions and diseases. That said, when I first got chicks, or 8 months before, actually, I read 4 books and everything I could get my hands on, to read about anything to do with chicks, feed, coops, diseases to look out for, breeds, eggs and egg color, and on and on. Anyone can post here on the forums, so you do need to filter what you listen to. Most everyone is helpful though to try and help you solve problems. These are a couple of good sources for diseases and conditions: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
