    I have called a few vets and no one so far takes care of chickens. I called around a while back when I lost one chicken to a predator and another one was injured and I wasn't sure what to do. (doctored her myself from the advice from BYC!)
    I live in Roanoke, VA and don't need a chicken vet now but am always worried that if something happens with one of my girls I want to have a number to call or somewhere to go to. Anyone in this area know of someone who takes care of sick/injured chickens? Thanks

    Somewhere on here, probably in a sticky, there is a list of vets that take chickens by state.

    You can try and search for it... [​IMG]
