    Rooster Won't Roost In Coop At Night

    I do have a spare coop that is open to him, and I've put him in there a few times at night but he always ends up outside unless I'm there to force or help him into the coop. He used to go in the coop every night by himself, but now he goes straight for the top of the coop. I don't want to have...

    Rooster Won't Roost In Coop At Night

    My bantam South Blue D'Anver rooster has been sleeping on top of the coop and not roosting at night since I got him this summer, and it wasn't a huge problem since the weather had been nice this summer, but now it's becoming winter and it snows and freezes at night. Last year one of my Polish...

    What is wrong with her?

    My Easter Egger, Robin, has been showing signs of sickness yesterday and today. She seems slower than usual and just not herself, and when I picked her up to check for mites and lice, she ended up throwing up yellow liquid. I have her inside my house because I’m hoping it’s just heat exhaustion...

    Will broody give up chicks after weekend?

    Compared to my other Buff Orpington who has her cushion pecked to death, she really is good looking.

    Will broody give up chicks after weekend?

    I am going to be showing my broody mama that currently has 3 chicks in 2-3 weeks and I’m worried that they’re too young to go from broody-raised to on their own. Mama would be gone for 3-5 days and I’m wondering if her broodiness would be broken by the time she got back, or if the chicks would...

    (Repost) Mystery Bump On Face

    Yes she’s acting like an average, normal chicken and doesn’t seem to have any personality changes. I was thinking it was some type of cyst, and it’s been there for less than a month, because I’m not sure of the exact time since I hadn’t really noticed it before.

    (Repost) Mystery Bump On Face

    (Nobody replied to the original post, so this is a repost) My Black Copper Maran, Cocoa, apparently has a large bump on her face that is hard in the center but can be ‘jiggled’ around. It doesn’t seem to be affecting her eye or eyesight. It’s on the left side of her face, and the right side is...

    My first broody lockdown questions

    Well the hatching happened sometime last night or early this morning, and everything seemed to be well when I got there. 3 eggs hatched, and one wasn’t fertile, or at least was a dud. I’ve had the flock free ranging all day and supervising when they needed to lay eggs. Everything’s going great...

    Can I bring broody and chicks on grass already?

    She’s in the main coop so she had a bit of room within the coop to bring them out and walk around, but it’s a raised coop so there’s a ladder and so they probably won’t be able to get out anytime soon, without getting hurt.

    Can I bring broody and chicks on grass already?

    My Broody’s 3 chicks hatched sometime either early this morning, like around dawn, or late last night. They were dry when I came out and checked on them. It’s pretty windy and therefore slightly cool out right now and will be that way for most of the day. I’m eager to get the chicks and momma...

    HELP! BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA TO THE HEAD, EYE SWOLLEN SHUT

    She’s doing amazing! Yeah, we’re going to do something about the door that fell to make it more secure and stop this from ever happening again. It was scary, and we might not be as lucky next time.

    My first broody lockdown questions

    So today is day 18 of incubation with my broody and her 4 eggs. She’s been nesting in the main “Blue Coop” with her whole flock. Only two other chickens lay or want to lay in her nest. Do I have to worry about these other hens spinning and moving the eggs? Should I do something or let it be? I’m...
