    Is there a list or a a forum where I can post a farm that gave us sick chicks? They didn't care at all and sell countless chicks a day. Our entire flock now has a virus, and my 6 year old shouldn't have to deal with this. She raised those chicks from babies, and now they're sick because of someone's deliberate carelessness. I'm extremely upset and don't want this to keep happening. If I can report these people to someone please let me know.

    Some diseases are reportable to the government as they cause harm to the poultry industry. Contact your local ag department and give them the seller's information and the symptoms you've been seeing.

    If possible take a sick bird or two to a vet and get his diagnosis. It will add credence to your complaints.

    Good luck with this situation. I agree with diva's response...if you can take the sick bird if it will help with proof.
