I live in Eugene with a small flock we really enjoy. I only wonder, now that so many are keeping small backyard flocks as "pets", why the avian vetrinarians haven't realized this trend and added chickens to their list of species they will treat. We have several wonderful avian vetrinarians in our area, but none are "able" to treat chickens, only exotic birds like parrots. It seems that chickens are still seen as "expendable" in the pet health care industry?
Also, my girls would really love a rooster. I've heard there is a simple operation to remove the vocal chords that would allow for roosters to exist in the city? I feel bad that so many roosters are killed every year if a simple operation could make it so they could live in urban areas? Anyone have information on this?
