    Sick pullet lethargy

    Sterile saline out of an iv fluid bag. Using sterile needles ect. I could see about the vet. They are all overwhelmed here and taking appointments months out. I can get some corrid and start treatment for coccidia, but the poop doesn't match what I've associated with coccidia in the...

    Sick pullet lethargy

    Crop is empty. Just flat. I've been forcing sugar water with electrolytes as many times as I can throughout the day. In addition to the subq fluids. I've tried getting some water with food in her, but she hasn't taken that well. She is still standing throughout the day and gets annoyed with...

    Sick pullet lethargy

    My three month old pullet presented with lethargy almost a week ago. I have had her separated and giving Sq fluids. Not eating or drinking on her own. She is vaccinated for mereaks and coccidia. No new birds, change in feed or other symptoms. The rest of the flock is fine. She was dewormed...

    Leg paralysis

    Free range plus 16% layer feed. They also get occasional fruit and veggie scraps. I fed cooked eggs to the other two with no improvement.

    Leg paralysis

    A few months ago, I had a young rooster begin limping. I figured he had injured himself some how and just monitored. Well the limp worsened to where the toes were curled under, but he was still walking on it. At this point, I braced it and confined him for a few days. He was in pain and I...

    Help. Chick has swallowed a string

    Thank you for your help! It wasn't around the tongue. The chick's owner decided to cut the string. She is eating, drinking, and pooping. So here is hoping she will make it.

    Help. Chick has swallowed a string

    A friend's 7 week old pullet has partially swallowed a string. Not sure how much, but I've tugged a bit and it wont come out. Any suggestions?

    Buff Orpington Boy or Girl?

    With those slate legs, I'm thinking an EE mix. It is probably a little roo. He has too much red in the comb and the red patches on his wings.

    Snakes Kill Chickens!

    I had one too when was younger. Im a big fan of snakes normally. I hate to move this big guy because I know he has been here for years. A friend is going to take him. He will have over 20 acres of woods to play in. No chickens around.

    Snakes Kill Chickens!

    Ive lost three hens, all over 3 months old, to a rat snake. It snatches them off the roost at night, kills them, and leaves their bodies. I finally caught it tonight! It was about to go for my full grown Easter egger hen. It is every inch of 6 feet. I'm fine with snakes and will happily share...

    Is this what she says it is?

    How old? Then one on the bottom looks like it has slate colored legs so some sort of Easter Egger. It looks like a pullet though.

    Hen with swollen face and mouth sore

    Thank you. My vet will not treat chickens. It doesn't really look like canker. The swollen cheeks are filled with hard puss. There are black scabs that pull out cheese looking stuff. There is more in the holes left behind. Any ideas? Is she just infected?
