    Help! Egg Bound Chicken.

    Aaah I thought it had completely broken - if it’s just cracked, try lubricating the vent with Vaseline/olive oil and see if she passes it whole: she needs to pass it within a day or so before it becomes dangerous

    Help! Egg Bound Chicken.

    Do you notice any blood on the vent? You don’t want it to become infected - try to get any egg shell out gently by lubricating your fingers with Vaseline/Olive oil. Next flush her out with some mild vinegar solution to prevent infection. If you can, try to get her on some anti biotics, although...

    I dropped my chicken?

    yesterday my 3 year old hen fell out of my arms when I was standing up, she probably fell around 3-4 feet. She didn’t fly down she fell sideways with her wing out. Afterwards she was making weird sneezing/breathing noises. Will she be ok? How can I tell if I damaged anything? She’s singing...

I did feed them fish skin today but I’m wondering if she swallowed it whole to stop the others getting to it. If it is the fish skin, will...

    Chicken squarks when poops?

    They said it was a polyp? (I think that’s how you spell it) and it was on the inside of her but grew so it popped out and was causing her discomfort. It’s not harmful, but if it gets infected it could have potentially killed her so they gave us the option of either keeping her on antibiotics for...
