oh gawd, bird flu is in the news again, and my state is one of the ones affected again, it always makes me worry about my backyard chickens...
... and tonight "worried mommy mode initiated" as 3 of my newest chicks (only days old) are a little sneezy, and they are gulping and head flicking a little like they need to clear sinus fluid (like how when we get a runny nose and it drips down our throats)
They are otherwise 100% normal, bright eyed, eating, running around, perfectly fine... but OMFG does it send me on alert to see these mild sinus signs, chances are they just got food dust up their nose or choked on some water but in the back of my mind I go "omg I have bird flu! I am going to loose everyone!"
I HATE being such a worry wart 8C
