I recently inherited a small flock of chickens and I've had two die in the past four weeks, one from anemia due to worms and another from unknown causes. I really want to take good care of these beautiful birds, and I've been reading relentlessly about chickens, but I confess that every time I open one of Gail Damerow's wonderful and informative books, I feel somewhat overwhelmed. I'm basically just looking for common sense advice on keeping chickens healthy (besides the obvious--proper feeding and watering, clean coop, access to the outdoors...). Are there any medications I should keep on hand, any common problems I should be on the lookout for? Any advice would be much appreciated.
