If you ask for advice regarding a poorly hen but ignore advice to seek medical attention, or deny a hen access to medical attention, DO NOT ATTACK our members, staff or forum as a whole. We will ALWAYS put the hen's welfare before the feelings of the poster. Attacks of this nature will result in termination of membership. DO NOT USE THIS FORUM TO BYPASS A VET. By all means ask for advice but expect to hear advice that may involve spending money at a vet.
