We went over and over all the things we have changed in his diet, his meds, when the scratching and hot spots started, what he came in contact with etc.
We remembered that he had come in contact with a dead fox in our barn around the same time the itching started. We had looked at the fox and it looked mangey, but we couldn't be sure if that's what it was, or if it was decomposing.
We are so thankful the doctor knew what it was and was able to diagnose him right away. The Lord answered our prayers!
Our chicken that was "sick" passed away. We believe she was egg bound. We tried the ususal steps to help her get the egg out, but had no success. We are however, relieved she was not ill as that would pose a problem for the rest of the flock.
The barn foundation is coming along! It's going to be really nice when all is said and done. Don't mind the whole in the side, all will be fixed!
Praise the Lord! It's been a good day!
