11 Tips for Keeping Healthy, Stress-Free Chickens

Control parasites.

Parasites not only make birds uncomfortable, they can carry disease and lower a chicken’s immune system response to disease.

Keeping your birds well-fed and stress- and disease-free helps their bodies repel parasites and makes them better able to tolerate any they may still contract.
