I just wanted to say a big thank you for everyone who over the years has helped others, including myself, here in this thread and offered your advice. I have not only found help for common problems like mites, but just today I had to do an emergency Google search for "hen choking" and sure enough an old thread from BYC popped up. She couldn't catch her breath, poor thing had gotten food caught up in her throat at some point (though we spread it out to try and help prevent that), and had foam all over her face. I read through the solutions and got an extra hand to hold her, massaging her crop and trying some other tips. I am really grateful this old hen got immediate help and I am happy to say she is okay now. It was the first time I had ever faced the problem, and I am really happy BYC was there with answers at the top of my search. So THANK YOU AGAIN to those who keep a watchful eye over the emergency/diseases/injuries/cures thread! And please, if you've found some serious help here, I hope you'll say thank you too and encourage these good folks.
