Advice on chicken / hen vets

Hello English forum,

We are relatively new chicken owners (we keep two as pets), and one of them seems a bit sickly (very lethargic).

I would really like the in-person opinion of a vet, since all of the information online is a bit overwhelming.

Does anyone here have any recommendations for farm vets that know something about chickens in the Basel / Rheinfelden area? And possibly understand English?

Re: Advice on chicken / hen vets

Hi K8eighty
We have a couple of chickens too, and aside from help and advice from a local hobby breeder, we also went to a regular vet, and they were helpful enough. Sorry I can't give any info specific to your area.

There are often regional associations of breeders of small animals, rabbits, chickens, ducks etc., who are also helpful with such questions. You would be looking for the : "Kleintierverein".

Two chickens are on the low end of possible number of animals to keep here, but I think still allowed. They are quite sensitive or prone to various ailments, so it's nice to have a few as a "backup".

I hope you find an english speaking vet and that your birds are ok.

Be well!
