    Impaled wing?

    What would you like pictures of? The wound itself or the wing as a whole? Or both? I can get them tomorrow for you. For now, she is inside, treated with Aluspray because it's what I had handy, and the wing is wrapped so that it is tucked to her side. There are no bones sticking out. Do...

    Impaled wing?

    I went to close the coop/run up tonight and found one of my hens dangling by her wing. It looks like she spooked or jumped up and got the wing stuck on the fence. I held her up and the neighbor cut the fence so we could get her down. It looks like the wing was impaled on the wire, plus...

    Run is becoming dangerous!

    No, I don't. Where do you get a cloth like this? And I love the paver idea! Thank you!

    Run is becoming dangerous!

    I have a coop attached to a run that is basically two dog runs put together so they have a large space. They also have the kennel covers tied down to the top of the run so that they are fairly safe. Here's the problem. The coop is set up under some trees and the girls have run the dirt so far...

    RIR Roo is hopping/skipping

    He has no other symptoms other than the leg. I have never had any other "disease" type issues with my flock. He is coming up on two years old, in good health, nice solid weight. I will get more pictures this afternoon. I will also attempt a video.

    RIR Roo is hopping/skipping

    I noticed my younger roo hopping along like he had a lame leg. I checked it for obvious breaks and could find nothing. Nothing is swollen, but there is some heat at the lower end of his leg. He is also stretching it forward a lot, instead of curling it when you hold him. I washed his feet...

    Questions about Marek's

    I have noticed I haven't gotten any eggs from the other chickens sharing the "airspace". I read someone in one of the FAC's that mature hens stop laying with some disease. Can someone help me out and tell me which one? I have read too many pages to keep them all straight. And just for the...

    Questions about Marek's

    We looked pretty carefully and could find no injuries. I read both FACs...the Marek's and the MS/MG one. I am hoping it is not Marek's...am kind of waiting to see if any of the other chickens come down with problems. I am also dusting them for parasites and worming them all. "Just in case"...

    Questions about Marek's

    Many thanks to both of you for your responses. I had seven chickens to start with, then bought six chicks at rural king. Through the activities of a lovely raccoon, we lost five of them. The lace is the one that lived. She had her own separate coop on the ground. We then bought the six swap...

    Help!! Marek's Disease??

    I know this is an old thread. I am hoping you are still on here. I have posted a thread with questions about Marek's. Can you please please help me? I think that a bird of mine died of Marek's. I didn't know to do the necropsy. How do I know if one of my "new" birds brought it in? Do I...

    Questions about Marek's

    I just had a four month old lace wyandotte die on me. I have been researching for two days and it may or may not have been Marek's. The first thing I noticed was her laying over sideways and not getting up. She wasn't really eating, had green diarrhea and her left eye crusted over. She never...
