    I have 8 hens and 1 rooster! I am very new to all this chicken stuff. well live ones. I work for a poultry company and deal with chickens all day everyday! I love my girls! but how ever I have a few that have an awful cackle for a cough. one chickens comb is turning white.
    any suggestions.?
