    Hen pulling out her own feathers??!

    But during molt do chickens just pull our the feathers themselves? She's been living inside with me for the past day and I am watching her pull them out.

    Hen has inflamed red spots and losing feathers? Help!

    What would separating him do? Would it calm him down or something? I can definitely do that. I can also separate my hen for a while. Do you think that would work instead? thanks

    Sick hen, paleness, lethargic and spot on tongue

    I would seek veterinary care if I were you. There is also this website called “justanswer” and it gets you in contact with professionals of all different categories, including bird veterinarians. Through that website I’ve been able to chat with a vet and send them pictures and they recommend...

    Hen has inflamed red spots and losing feathers? Help!

    Yes I do have a rooster. And she runs from him every time he is near her. Do those look like markings from the rooster?

    Hen has inflamed red spots and losing feathers? Help!

    Hello! I’ve recently noticed one of my GLW (2 years old) has developed some bald spots. The skin in the area is really inflamed and red. She’s also been acting weird. She is separate from the rest of her flock most of the time and is very timid now. Also very skittish. She still has a good...

    Hen acting weird during recovery

    Yep, shes on two forms of antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory. The weather here is excellent actually, maybe I can try that. UPDATE: she started eating again. She ate a bnch of her regular pellets and blueberries and apples and kale. So I think she must be feeling better.

    Hen acting weird during recovery

    Yes she’s been laying an egg successfully each day. I haven’t previously considered putting her outside. The vet said to keep her inside for two weeks.

    HELP!!! Hen foot curled and struggling to walk!!

    I would suggest getting it checked out by a vet. My local vet charges $50 to look over chickens, so it's not extremely expensive, it's worth it.

    New Rooster might have respiratory issues? Help!

    A little update/comment: He is infact a rooster! A very gorgeous and big one at that! He still sounds very raspy when he does make noises. So I think its just his voice. He doesnt use his voice often though, so my neighbors are happy about that. He doesnt do the cock-a-doodle-doo noises in the...

    HELP!!! Hen foot curled and struggling to walk!!

    I would suggest keeping her separated from the rest of the flock temporarily, maybe keep her in the house for a little while. Set her up in a dog crate or something with soft towels and/or dog training pads so shes surrounded by soft surfaces and can't injure herself. Then just monitor her for a...
