I am new to the chicken thing really... I was wondering if someone could give me a basic overview of the main things that will go wrong with chickens, what the symptoms are and what the treatment is? I have now realized that my hens are getting the dry fowl pox. Does this affect the eggs? I take it that this disease will not kill the hens? I wish I had a summary of potential things that could go wrong. Also, I read somewhere on here, at about 6 months of age to worm them? I never did this. Is it necessary? What is the medicine I should use? Thanks for any info!
