    Pale Floppy Comb

    Eating same feed they always have, nothing changed there. Not feeding anything new or different. Not broody at all. Really strange. Have given her a "spa" treatment because of a dirty looking bum. It wasn't wet or anything just needed cleaning up because of dried guck on it. Thanks for your...

    Pale Floppy Comb

    No she is not losing feathers, already went through molt. Thanks so much for the POOP CHART it did help rule out some things. Will try to feel her crop in the a.m.

    Pale Floppy Comb

    I have 2 Golden Comets, one is fine and produces 1 egg a day, however the other one stopped laying and her comb has gotten very pale. Both have been wormed and checked for mites and lice and no sign of either. Lilly the one that has stopped laying (for a while now) eats well, drinks well and...

    Rhode Island Red Meat Bird What Happened??

    Thank you for your reply. He does have mobility but sits a lot when he gets where he wants to be. Food, water and shade are available to him in the coop which he makes use of. He does go out into the temporary run we added to the coop until we free range, water is available out in it. He...

    Rhode Island Red Meat Bird What Happened??

    Thanks for the Information. I don't know how I'll be able to put "him" on a diet as I have the RIR (I hope anyway), 2 Golden Comets and 4 Guineas that all eat together. My hope is to free range them all very soon. Most definitely I'll be keeping an eye on "Reilly" this is where the Guineas will...

    Rhode Island Red Meat Bird What Happened??

    Thank you all for the info. Wow, the 2 chicks looked exactly alike when I got them, then all of a sudden "Reilly" shot up. I hope the other one is really a RIR. How could this happen? Do Red Ranger roosters lay down most of the time and walk like they have splayed legs? What can I do about...

    Rhode Island Red Meat Bird What Happened??

    I'm going to but have been putting it off, worried about "Reilly", she would not be able to run to the coop if she needed to, easy prey. We have added a fenced small run to their coop which she goes into, actually 1st one out in am! Maybe free range the others and keep her in the fenced pen?
