TIME FOR YOUR CHICKEN MOT!

Your Chickens - - Contents -

How of­ten do you check your chick­ens’ health? Do you pick them up reg­u­larly and ex­am­ine them? And, if you do, do you know what you are look­ing for? Do you know what that black mark on a comb sig­ni­fies, or the loss of feath­ers on a hen’s back? Do you know how to check if there is a lice in­fes­ta­tion, or a case of scaly leg mite? There is a wide va­ri­ety of ail­ments that can af­fect chick­ens, and this month we have a spe­cial eight-page guide ex­plain­ing how to check your birds. Thanks to Julie Moore for the guide and bril­liant pics. See pages 12-21.
