    Random thread I know but Google had no answers for me!

    Honestly I have never kept anything that is so susseptable to getting sick, maybe Im just unlucky but judging from the activity in this thread I cant be the only one.
    I keep my coop extremely tidey as well as give my birds high quality nutrients and I get hit with sickness over and over.

    Does it get better? Once you have bred through a couple generations?
    My only loose end from my viewpoint is the cheap crappy feed i give them. Anyone that has switched from conventional to organic food have you seen a significant difference?

    For your troubles
