At some point, every chicken keeper will experience a sick member of their flock. Many of us are lucky. We live close to veterinarians who treat chickens, can make them feel better, and cure their ailments. However, there are many folks who are on their own; without access to professional help. Often it is through the help of various on-line chat forums that they seek and get advice for their ailing bird. A great deal of this information is incredibly useful, beneficial and helpful. However, sometimes information can be wrong and downright harmful.
