Hello! I found this site when we were looking up some remedies for our new chickens! We had chickens when I was little, but since then I haven't been around many but we wanted to have fresh eggs for our family! So we started our own little flock! We have six Rhode Island Reds with a rooster (half black Austrolupe and Red), two bantam Cochins, and one Cornish X. We have had them almost seven months. We had them all seperated from each other when we got them, just like one of your threads stated in here. We still have two of the reds seperate because they had a runny nose and we gave them the antibotics that were recomended. Now they don't have a runny nose, but one of them looks like her feathers have been "chewed" on. I look forward to talking with all of you!
