Chicken Health & Poultry Management Contacts by State


Chicken Health & Poultry Management Contacts by State, via The Chicken Chick®
Most backyard chicken keepers resort to self-help to care for injured, sick and dying chickens at home due to the lack of access to a poultry veterinarian, but there are state and federal resources available to the poultry community that offer a variety of services. Those resources are listed by state below and include, each state veterinarian, each state's Department of Agricultural Cooperative Extension Service poultry specialist and each state's veterinary diagnostic laboratory.

Handling injuries, illnesses and death in a flock can be made less stressful by having information and supplies readily available. Have a well-stocked first aid kit & infirmary set up. Have a euthanasia
plan;  most vets will euthanize a sick or injured chicken even if they do not routinely treat chickens.
Find an avian veterinarian nearby and keep their phone number in your chicken first aid kit.  A list of board certified avian vets can be found HERE.
Join me on Pinterest where I have a board dedicated to veterinarians who treat chickens!

Always contact your state animal diagnostic/pathology lab when a bird dies unexpectedly to schedule a necropsy to determine the cause of death. Some illnesses and diseases are contagious and the rest of the flock may be at risk. Each state lab is listed in red, below.  Instructions for preparing and storing a chicken for post mortem examination can be found here.

The USDA's Veterinary Services offers a disease diagnostics consulting service with a veterinarian, free of charge. To speak with a USDA vet in your region, call 1-866-536-7593

There's an app for that?! The Kuddly app provides access to verified veterinarians around the world for a nominal fee. Poultry Veterinarian Dr. Annika McKillop is a participating poultry specialist on the Kuddly app. Get more information about this app HERE.
