As I was 'splaining to my wife; I'm not hell bent on culling the flock, but as responsible owners it is our duty to protect the healthy chickens from infection. We have 5 city chickens in our backyard and one of my New Hampshire reds has gotten a serious case of Montezuma's Revenge; and she's not getting any better. I made the decision to cull her as means of disease control. My wife is protesting and won't help out- "They're your chickens, you do it!" If only I knew how to boil some water. What says you?
