    Sick hen with diarrhea. Fowl Cholera? Need advice please

    My 3 year old Speckled Sussex hen apparently missed the bed time call last night as I was surprised to see her hunched down by the coop door this morning before I had let any of them out. I went in and did my usual routine of food in the feeders and water top up and let the rest out thinking the...

    Vulture keeps landing in my yard

    Would it be after the chickens? They all free range all day. I have not seen a lone vulture before have you? I live out in a farming area and we have hawks but never seen vultures before and there is nothing dead in my yard for sure! Do they go after live prey? How do I get rid of it? Right now...

    Broody hen- best way to move her?

    Finally one of my speckled sussex hens has gone broody (I think) (first time) she has been in the coop all day and when I went to do the afternoon egg check (mine lay all day long) there she was on the most popular nest all hunkered down. That nest is just a pile of clean straw on the floor of...

    Banded Pigeon came to live with us

    Oh forgot to mention I made her 2 extra perches today in there..she likes em. and yes enclosing one end is paramount as it is coming up on rainy/thunderstorm season here. I heard chick grit is ok? I have some already

    Banded Pigeon came to live with us

    I may have to divide the horse stall/chicken run if I can...and then yes, get some more friends..she seems lonely. But construction type work and my 62 year old bad back don't always agree :old the SSD income either:rolleyes:

    Banded Pigeon came to live with us

    And thanks to 3Bird's post and all you helpful lovely people, I knew just what to do. She? was hanging out with the chickens at first helping them eat their morning treat of scratch and then after she got chased off a few times she decided to hang out with me on the back deck. I caught her a...

    Chooks is back in business!

    KikiLeigh02 This was the first time ordering from any hatchery and we found the web site a bit clunky to get around in (too used to Amazon) LOL but the chicks arrived in good shape..all alive albeit a bit cold and protesting loudly. It took them most of yesterday to warm up and quiet down. This...
