    Good evening everyone!! [​IMG]

    I have a sad encounter happen to me today.......I went to work (A dog boarding and Daycare kennel) the people that own it have chickens and I just happened to go down to see them today while I was on a break. What I saw horrified me![​IMG] Almost ALL the chickens were NAKED hardly any feathers on them! Their water was algae infested and all the man was feeding them was a cup of scratch feed he threw out on the ground in the mornings and evenings. [​IMG] While I was watching one of the chickens pooped and all it was, was green water!! DISGUSTING! Apparently the man thought they were perfectly fine....... [​IMG]

    It sounds like it's already too late. [​IMG] If they are pooping green watery poop they are starving to death. They fact that they have no feathers to boot tells me this is something they may not recover from. Tell your boss's husband he has my deepest sympathy [​IMG] for the inevitable demise of his chickens.
