Hey everyone... I know I could probably answer my own question here by looking at all the posts here...but figure I would start a new thread anyway. I'm in the research phase....that phase where I'm reporting everything back to the wife trying to gauge how much all this is going to cost me. I'm curious about a couple things. What is the most common disease or illness I'll see? I'm going to have 6 hens...probably a variety between buffs, RIRs, and another breed. Also, for those that go to the vet to treat your hens, how much can I expect a visit to cost? I have dogs so I know those visits but didnt know if chickens were less? For those that treat their own, where do you get the medicines and how expensive are they? I'll be getting the hens started and not as chicks. Thanks in advance!!
