Hello! I am new here…well not really new…been lurking since we got our chickens last Good Friday…but finally decided I needed to post to get help for my girl Bessie. I posted over in emergencies about what is going on with her if anyone here can take a look and help me out. This site has been so informative and I was able to help one of my other girls, Betty, when one of our dogs go her too. She made a full recovery. My 3 boys talked me into buying chickens at the local feed store last spring. I was leary, but they really have been fun and educational. We have 9 total. 2 RIR; 2 BO; 2 EE; Betty our black sex link, Bessie our red sex link, and a white brahma.
