Poultry Health Articles

I don't know about you but since we've had chickens, I've had to take a crash course in veterinary medicine! I've done blood testing, given injections, diagnosed diseases and administered antibiotics. We've had necropsies done and had some real health "head-scratchers".

Even after all that, I still feel like a total novice and I'm thrilled to lean on the expertise and experience of Lisa Vaughn, a fellow chicken owner, licensed vet tech and blogger who has graciously agreed to be our "poultry health guru" and write some health articles for us. If you are interested in submitting an article of your own, please contact us.

Coccidiosis

Fowlpox

Gout

NPIP Diseases
