    So I hoping I'm placing this in the right board, moderators please let me know if not.

    The backstory:
    I'm a 3rd year veterinary student (with a backyard flock at home) currently on a poultry rotation, which requires presentation at the conclusion. Most poultry specific vets work with industry and due to the setup of the industry seeing small flock clients is not an option and many small private veterinarians do not feel comfortable seeing poultry. My presentation is focused on flock owner education that we, as veterinarians, are failing to do. Owner education in this case would be everything from management strategies (ex. biosecurity, vaccination) to disease processes that you would liked to be more aware of. Stories, pictures, even one word answers are all very much appreciated. Thanks so much for your help!

    The question:
    What do you wish you would have been told regarding poultry?
