I was looking for the old-timer rocking chair thread but it seems it's been closed down I just wanted to know how seasoned chicken owners dealt with managing their flock when they first notice a sick or injured bird, especially when it's not clear what the issue is. I'm not talking about pet chickens. My birds are egg layers and while I enjoy their company and their personalities, a producing, healthy flock is my top priority so I'm asking from that perspective. What is your first reaction? How do you respond? Do you watch and wait or do you immediately remove the bird? Quick to cull or nurse the malady? How much money are you willing to spend, if any, to save a bird? A flock?
