    The problem I have with disease sites is that you pretty much have to know what's wrong with the chicken before you look things up.

    Is there a site that says something like, "If chicken's poo is _________, then it may have _________" and you go on to see if the other symptoms match up with your chicken?

    I've seen such a chart in a chicken book. I believe it was entitled The Chicken Health Handbook, but am not sure as I've been looking at so many chicken books lately. I think other poultry books have charts or descriptions of symptoms and their possible causes/diseases.

    I have the chicken health handbook. It's pretty useful actually. I read it through once so I can figure out where to look if I came across things. I read it like 8 years ago though so not much has stuck.
