A newbie posted elsewhere that coming to this forum was a terrifying experience. Chicks are sick. Chicks are injured. Chicks have died. I'd like to reassure them, and anyone else that needs reassurance, that chickens which are sick, injured, and/or dying are the exception not the rule. Mine have never known a days illness. One of mine even survived injuries from an eagle attack. My chickens are fine. Who else's chickens are fine?
