    Hi everyone. I wanted to just provide this link for all the people with fowl. It is not only usual for once your bird is sick, it can teach you things to look for to assess general health while you sit and gaze lovingly at them!

    I plan on printing it out for myself in case my computer goes down.

    Each disease is described by symptom, what type of fowl it affects, typical outcomes and treatments.

    At the end of the paper there are three checlists, ome each for respiratory illness, bacterial and viral non- respiratory illness.

    I hope you all never need it, but keep a copy anyway! :D
