    Cut on my hen's beak

    I came home to find my chicken had a cut on her beak. We have a coop and small run which is enclosed within a bigger electric fence run. I checked all the wire fencing and I didn't see any wire sticking out of the smaller run enclosure, so I'm not sure how she got injured, maybe by another...

    Talk me off the Ledge... $2000 for a chicken coop!

    I got an omlet coop and run for somewhere near 1k. It's definitely more than I needed to pay for a 4 chicken coop, but I wanted to worry about the young chickens themselves than figuring out how to build a coop. We are considering getting a second coop and this thread is making me think I should...

    Try to clean it gently as best as you can. Is it still bleeding?

    Something very strange in the nesting box

    An egg white. Normal except it looked like it had sort of a thicker membrane around the white but if you poked it, it was just an egg white.

    Something very strange in the nesting box

    Hey everyone... my little sister found this "fairy" egg today. normal shell and egg white inside. I don't care if she never lays an egg ever again, I just want her to be healthy and I want to know what's going on.

    Ameraucana or Easter Egger?

    I bought her as an ameraucana from Murray McMurray hatchery, and some people on BYC have said she's an ameraucana, and some have said she's and EE! She lays very light blue eggs. The chick picture is from a year ago today:D.What do you think and why!

    best way to put a chick out of its miserey?

    Read the whole thread... I'm really proud of you! Part of having animals is knowing when to do the right thing and you did the right thing. She is at peace now and is much happier. I don't think she would have a fair chance at a healthy life and this was the kindest thing to do.

    Can I keep meat-birds as pets?

    I would say it depends on the breed and how they are bred. They can live shorter than some other breeds but I'm sure with some research and monitored diet you can extend their healthy life. Meat bird breeds are bred to grow very quickly so they can be "harvested" quickly. Sometimes if they...
