    Sick turkey poult, clicking sound, swelling cheeks, shaking head, scissor beak. Help?!

    Bubba needs help

    Definitely use vetricine, my roo got a piece of his comb torn, and while it took a month or so to heal, it recovered well although the end of his comb has a funny shape.

    Sick turkey poult, clicking sound, swelling cheeks, shaking head, scissor beak. Help?!

    It sounds like he has some sort of birth defect or bone growth issue, it does not sound like some kind of disease or injury. The breathing issue is most likely related to the neck spasms. I’m glad to know that he deals well though. I don’t know if you will be able to do anything except try to...

    Broody Hen Won't Walk/Can't Stand Up

    She sounds weak, it could just be the heat and the fact that she has lost weight to broodiness...but I would keep her in a cool place with access to fattening, energy rich foods (hard boiled egg yolk, oatmeal, crushed almonds, etc.) and plenty of cold clean water.

    Can chickens be depressed?

    Feed her treats and keep her in a nice warm box-if she is willing to be contained-one of our hens was attacked by a hawk and came out with minor scrapes and she displayed the same symptoms that you described. A few days and and a carton of oats with yogurt and she was as good as new. Definitely...

    Hens head color not looking correct

    The combs are a big indicator of a chicken's circulatory health. If it is cold, it will also pale. What happened to the last hen like that?

    6 Week Old Silkie With Swollen Foot

    That looks like bumblefoot. When chickens get an infection, Their immune system surrounds it with white blood cells which dry out and create a "bumble". They have to be removed if they get too big. I do suggest Epsom salt baths and if you can, try to flush out the area.
