    Hello to One and all!
    I look forward to Talking Chicken and Learning more about them from you. I've got 5 hens (Golden Pullets) I think they are and One Legern Rooster. I use to raise some Bantams,but lost then to Possoms---I don't inten to let that happen to theses!

    Just wondering now if there is maybe something I could give them to help them from getting sick?? Coop Is dry and clean as possible I think for it to be. But thinking maybe If i could find or learn of something I could give them to maybe keep them from getting a Cold or something --I would get it for them.

    I've got 15 eggs since this pasted Friday. I sure don't remember my chickens from child hood laying like these Girls have.

    Any one near--Drop me some mail if you like. I'm in South West Va.

    Thanks!
    Dave

    You might like doing a search for threads on "Biosecurity." That might lead you to some information that could answer your question about preventing disease.
