I know we all make jokes on BYC about chicken math and how its an ever growing hobby. Many people can manage a large flock and keep their birds healthy and well cared for. What do you do when you know someone that has a serious hoarding problem? The inside of the house is beyond filthy and the coop and chickens are in terrible shape. Birds have Coryza and a ton of different RDS symptoms. The person continues to buy and hatch more chickens incessantly and keeps them in tightly packed, dirty cages and bins and sells and barters her birds even though she knows they are sick. She does not have money to care for the birds she has and won't stop acquiring more. Initially, I tried helping by buying medicine and food and hay for her because I felt sorry for the birds and talking to her about how wrong it is to destroy someone else's flock with sick birds to no avail. Before I knew better, the sick birds I tried to rescue from her destroyed the health of my first flock. The state was already called by a medical clinic for a family member under her care due to concerns regarding neglect and sanitation. The neighbors have called animal control on her but animal control seemed unconcerned with the chickens and mostly took cats and dogs. What do you do in a sad situation like this?
