    Tylan 50 Out of Stock

    Tractor supply looked it up and it’s on back order for every store. Even trying to google a store for it yields no results. The local vet sells it for $80. What happened to it being sold in stores?

    Flock won’t eat, green poop, sudden death

    I lost another chicken Friday. The lab results came back yesterday from Pirate and she had a lot of enterococcus and escherichia coli in her intestines.

    Flock won’t eat, green poop, sudden death

    Actually, i’m glad you pointed this out. I may have not read into this as much before because I’ve never had a chicken die around this time so suddenly.

    Flock won’t eat, green poop, sudden death

    On Sunday, my youngest hen Pirate seemed off. I brought her in, overnight she went downhill and died. The rest of the flock isn’t doing great. They are all 5-7 years old. They haven’t touched their food(Dumor Layer) since Monday. I filled it to the top and they haven’t eaten it. They’ve eaten...

    Hen Not Active. Full Crop but Isn’t too Perky

    Spent $150 on an autopsy plus whatever the fecal sample cost and learned nothing. The results were inconclusive. Not respiratory. Said Pirate was jaundiced and prolly sick for a while. They are sending cultures to the lab to see if it was digestive. The poop sample revealed nothing. I feel like...

    Hen Not Active. Full Crop but Isn’t too Perky

    Thank you. Maybe I’m paranoid but one of my hens, Raven, seems off now too. She was sleeping in the nesting box. I brought her inside. She’s perky, but also doesn’t seem perky enough. She’s also excessively drinking water. Her crop is full. Doesn’t feel watery. I hope I am just reading too much...

    Hen Not Active. Full Crop but Isn’t too Perky

    Thanks for your reply. She went downhill very fast. She seemed fine yesterday, ate mealworms but didn’t come out to free range. Her not coming out was concerning. I brought her inside to be safe. She was still perky. Drinking excessive water though. Her crop was full of food. She really didn’t...

    Looking for possible cause of death for Mathilda

    You described how my chicken died. She died in a day though. Was fine yesterday, ate mealworms but didn’t come out to free range. I brought her inside to be safe. She was still perky. Drinking excessive water though. Her crop was full of food. The next morning she went downhill. Not perky at...

    Hen Not Active. Full Crop but Isn’t too Perky

    This is one of my favorite hens, Pirate. She is three years old. My youngest one since the rest of the flock is all seven years for the most part. This morning I found her roosting in the coop. She didn’t come out even when I shook mealworms. When I showed her mealworms she ate them though...

    Necropsy Picture and Cause of Death?

    Thanks for the replies. I really needed a helper because it just wasn’t easy for me to take gloves on and off for pictures. Reid’s issues were just puzzling especially since they had been ongoing for a year.

    Necropsy Picture and Cause of Death?

    My Swedish Flower Hen, Reid has been on and off sick for a year. She would stop eating, and be lethargic. I’d tube feed her for a few days and then she’d be fine. That only happened a couple times last year. This year, it was “well Reid is sick again” it happened so often. I tried treating her...

    How to Permanently Stop Egg Laying?

    I have a hen named Raven who is 6 years old. She is a Sumatra. Last year, she prolapsed her vent twice. I did the whole separate her, baths, pushing it back in... It stayed in all winter. Now that the spring is here, it’s prolapsed twice more. She’s just about recovered from this last time, but...
