Chickens & Ducks

We work with hundreds of backyard chicken and duck flocks in Vermont, and can help with issues of production, management and prevention of disease. Ask our office for a poultry questionaire to fill out prior to our seeing one of your birds. Have you considered maintaining a "closed flock" to prevent disease outbreaks in your birds? Have you thought about only purchasing Marek's vaccinated chicks when adding to or starting a flock? What issues have you had in free range birds--parasites? impacted crops? bumbe foot? egg binding? Bring us one ill bird and we will partner with you to help you raise a healthy flock, depending on your wishes and philosophy.
