When you have a chicken emergency, it can be a confusing and stressful situation.

 

In this episode of What The Cluck?! we explore an emergency on the farm this week, how we handled it, and what you can do to be prepared for emergencies with your flock.*

 

You’ll learn:

  • When to apply natural medicine versus traditional Western medicine
  • Tools, medications, and equipment to keep on hand
  • How to handle critical, spur-of-the-moment judgement calls
  • Mistakes with natural medicine you want to avoid
