post #33581 of 41609
Dumb question: has anyone ever accidentally stepped on a bird? The other day, I was in the run and was holding Sophia. Every time I go out there, she wants to be picked up or get in my lap. Well, when she does Rose & Domino start hovering because then they want attention. I didn't realize Rose was behind me & when I stepped back to put Sophia down, I stepped on her foot(?). I just heard her squawk & try to step away but obviously she couldnt. Today, I noticed she seems to be limping. She's eating, drinking and acting normal. I checked her over and nothing seems swollen or broken, but she's obviously been hurt in some way. I feel horrible! I weigh 150lbs, she weighs 5. Poor thing. Has this happened to anyone?

Oh good. I felt like total a-hole. I've got my eye on her for now. She's acting 99% normal so I figure she'll be alright. Just wondered how often it happens to folks.

So Daisy had two kids today.  Both boys.  One was still born.  Last year she gave us 2 girls.  She must've tried a new position this year.

My girls get underfoot all the time and they do get stepped on, she will be ok, just rub her foot and she will be good as new.

 

 

 

Here is a topic that new chicken owners will come upon, "Do I heat my chicken coop"   I say no because then the chickens do not get acclimated to the weather and they do not grow their winter feathers so they will be cold.  You need to make sure that there are no drafts but good ventilation to keep moisture down and keep the coop clean chicken poop puts off a lot of moisture and moisture leads to frost bite. If it snows I clean a path from the coop to the yard.  Make sure the roosts are wide enough so when the birds roost at night they can cover their feet.  If a comb gets frost bite some say put vaseline on it some say it doesn't work.  Leave it a lone if it is bad enough the comb will die and fall off.  I do put vaseline on my combs.  I'm sure I have forgotten something so chime in and tell the newbies what works for you or what you have heard.
