Many veterinarians working with the occasional backyard chicken may not even be aware of their existence. It is obvious that their assistance, when sought, can be invaluable. The largest veterinary avian community (by membership) is the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV). Its membership is primarily composed of veterinarians working with companion birds, but is by no means confined to it.

Commercial producers are highly protective of their very large and very expensive investment and small flocks of chickens present a credible and ever-present danger to their livelihood and the lives of their birds.
