    It's our first bunch of chickens, and we've had them for about 3 years. Absolutely love them! (Love the eggs too!) We've gone through quite a lot with them, though, mites, and damaged tissue...etc... Wanted to join up to ask questions and get advice about sour crop. BYC has been a great website for us! Thanks!

    Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. Sometimes the faster way to advice is - the search box. For instance put "sour crop," and search that. I am not very techy so this is a great way for me to find things.

    I diffidently feel at home here! Love chatting with chicken lovers from all over! And the great thing is, most of these chicken lovers will do things like bath their chickens in sinks, which some of our friends diffidently wouldn't- wouldn't even let the chicken in the house. Love the great ideas, advice, and the people! Thank you so much, BYC!
