Hate to post this, but I've searched the forums and can't find it. About 3 or 4 months back- I think it was Paul that posted a really good thread about how to diagnose chicken illness. It had a link to a site, and the site systematically addresses each element of a chicken, with photos of what a healthy chicken part should look like (eyes, comb, beak, etc). I searched different criteria, even using Paul's name, etc, but no luck. Even went out to google and couldn't find it there.

I knew I should have bookmarked it....
