Every week at Community Chickens, we get dozens of questions from people across the world, hoping to find someone who has shared a similar experience. We try to answer them all, and forward them on to experts where we can. But many of the questions are unique, and because of this, we realize that sometimes the best people to answer the questions are precisely the people who are or have been in your shoes. This is why we often ask our guest bloggers to tackle questions – and they do such a great job!
I wash our eggs, carton them, then set them on the counter. What would be the expiration of these. Refrigerated and not?
PS I LOVE your web site. 🙂
Thank you in advance.
Q16: R.m. writes: Hi Community Chickens. I am having a real problem with my flock and am hoping for some advice. Last month, they all came down with an upper respiratory infection. It was pretty bad, but successfully treated. two days ago, I heard a sneeze. I froze, but couldn’t see who that might have been. Yesterday, was more sneezing but again, couldn’t figure it out. Today, one of my favorites sounds a little juicy when she breaths and another is close behind. I’m panicking about treating everyone again, not having those eggs, again and worst of all, I just put the babies out yesterday before any more sneezing or juicy sounds, so they are now exposed, too. What am I doing wrong!??? And what should I do to treat them (all?) so this doesn’t recur? Yes, there is Bragg Vinegar in their water. Yes the coop is cleaned and well ventilated. I am in tears from frustration and at a loss on what to do, Can any of you help? Thanks!
