Thank you for this site. It's been a much needed place for advice. I finally decided to join after lurking some. My husband,daughter and I have 13 Chickens, 3 Pekin ducks, a horse and 2 dogs. We got our chickens and ducks this past spring and are complete newbies. Unfortunately we've lost 2 chickens to some type of infection and through here have started giving them antibiotics. After 3days they are looking better.
