Hi i've had a few backyard hens for 3-4 years now. Not sure why i didn't join here sooner! Currently have 5 ladies - leghorn, copper black, columbine, light sussex and blue haze. In UK so i guess some of those might be different to type if chickens US memvers have??? Having problens recently trting to find a vet who can help with chickens without resorting to farm vets high prices and anti pet attitudes. My leghorn seems to have vent glee i just can't get it to go away completely and my coper black seems to be getting more and more skinny. Can't locate any crop issues. All have recently had a course of antibiotics and worming just in case. No mites. Definately getting eggs from both leghorn and copperblack almost daily. Anything else i can do or check before i get a vet here? Just worried vet may want to kill any hen not seeming 100% healthy as they won't recognise them as pets. I'm in north and backyard chickens are uncommon here. Good to meet everyone - sorry to ask for help straight away and thank you in advance to amy who read this!
