Hi friends. This is a sad post, but I hope it might help someone. We lost our 5-year-old head hen Sweet Tango today to a horrible and preventable condition called flystrike. I am reminding my chicken friends to check those fluffy butts and keep them clean, use fly traps around the coop and run, and clean up droppings. I didn’t realize what it was and was treating her for worms. I don’t wish this on anyone. Her death was horrible and painful. Please don’t be like me. Here she is in better days.
