    I have been reading many threads on the site and love what I've learned until I came to the Emergencies/diseases/injuries and cures section.

    Now I am terrified for my fine feathered friends

    I want to know what these diseases look like so I can be prepared if my hens get these...my problem is impact crop sounds like you have an insect infestation in the garden (not really a chicken issue). Could some of you all post pictures and or discribe what they are?

    What else should I be aware of???

    How common are theses???

    Can someone just reassure me that my hens will live long and be great family members?
