Common Illnesses of Pet Hens

Chickens are now the sixth most popular pet, and re‐homed commercial hens (ex-bats) are the ideal starter hen for first‐time hen keepers. Ex‐bats do, however, have their own specific issues, and sometimes knowing what is normal can help to establish the severity of a presenting condition. Our friends from the BHWT have put together a helpful guide to common illnesses of pet hens to help you along!
