    Hello!
    We've only been raising chickens for eggs since April 22, 2011. I recently posted “Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures>>sick polish—mold??” when my Polly feel ill. This has been a really informative forum and I am happy to report Polly is on the way back to gaining her strength. I spend hours reading all the posts to get the most information in an effort to making my chickens healthy and happy.
    I recently posted our story on "Raising Baby Chicks>> Holy Heck, what happened????????” but I am not sure if I can repeat the information here as an introduction. Please let me know if that is appropriate.
    Meanwhile, we have a lucky 13 chickens at this time, but started out with a selected 6 in April. We just acquired two Silkie Hens on Saturday! [​IMG]
    I am looking at ways to naturally worm my chickens since I let them free roam when I am outside and watch for hawks. Their favorite pastime is to scratch in the leaves under our camper or around the compost pile. I understand Florida is famous for many things including worms for our animals. Although, I have my dog checked for worms every six months, I have not found a vet who will deal with chickens even when Polly was so sick! I am still watching the posts for more information. The breeder where we purchased the Silkies gave her chickens pumpkin seeds and cayenne pepper to worm her chicken.
    Thank you again for your warm welcome. I am working on posting some pictures and also interested in the photo contest, but can’t find any information on it.
