Hens with Infectious coryza:
I noticed another poorly looking hen in the hen house so put it with the other in isolation. Despite expecting for the first one to die, it has improved a lot! I think it just needs to naturally try to fight it off (and be isolated from the others to prevent it spreading).
Since having company, they both seem a lot happier 😀
I mucked out the hen house and scraped the perches and tops of the nesting boxes. This should help controlling infections.
Scaly leg mites:
Their treatment is ongoing… I can’t believe how much better the first hen is!
Goat foot rot:
I fell in love with the goat I isolated to prevent the spread of foot rot.
So although it is great that it’s hooves are okay now- I put it back with the others so it can go outside, it’s no longer needing company!
A few of the goats are limping, but I have already made a years schedule for their foot rot treatment.
This month I will trim their hooves.
I will continue to oversee these things when I go to sixth form as well as running the mini farm explorers group at the weekend :D.
