    I found some stray chickens in my backyard. I check them for mice and lice ( they do not have any). I looked at their combs and they are bright red. What I mean is they look heakthy. I have separated.

    Hey Max, Do your chickens still have that disease? Just cause the birds have red combs doesnt particulaary mean theey are healthy. Be cautious

    Quote:They still have the disease. I have put them in the other coop. We did disenfect the other coop. We are going to see if we can find the owners. If not we have some new birds. I have blocked of the runs so the strays do not have any contact with the others.

    if you see weird symptoms in the other birds be cautious because it could be an Airborne disease

    Do you know if they've been there before, around your birds?
