The chicken is a hardy animal, but when something does go wrong, the costs of treatment can be ruinously expensive. Most veterinarians do not treat poultry, and those that do charge far more than a single chicken is worth. Rather than viewing signs of illness as an immediate death sentence, however, owners of small chicken flocks have accepted the challenge of looking after their birds on their own. This small handbook explains all of the common ailments seen in chickens in easy-to-understand terms, including their symptoms, prevention, and treatment. Basic caretaking tips and humane euthanasia methods are also covered to ensure that every stage of your chickens' lives are as productive and happy as possible.
