TIME FOR YOUR CHICKEN MOT!
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.
