    I see so many different diseases and parasites that affect chickens. Does anybody know of a site that tells you what are the most common diseases and parasites for the state or region that you live in? For example, I will check my chickens for ticks but don't have to worry about fleas because I live in the hi desert and we don't have fleas. Come to think of it in the 8 yrs I've been up here I have never found a tick on my dogs. I did find one on me but we had been out deer hunting for a few days. Any info would be helpful. I don't want to become a chicken hypochondriac. LOL
