Hi, I am increasingly worried about the amount of posts that I am seeing and commenting on whereby the owner refuses to take the chicken to the vet as the costs are too high. If you can't afford to look after chickens properly - i.e take them to a vet when ill... - then don't have chickens. I understand in America you don't have organisations like PDSA where a family on low income can get a pet treated for free, but still, you lot have pet insurance don't you? Not being rude or horrible. But please, if you have animals then you have to realise they'll need medical attention sometimes! Common sense people!
