    HEN WITH SWOLLEN EYE

    I have 9 two year old hens and just today after having my parents watch them for a week I found out that one of my RIR hens has a swollen eye! I think it’s from one of the other hens picking at her but usually she does not get picked on. I don’t know the cause or what to do?? They’re all mixed...

    Hand feeding a picky cockatiel

    Hi, so I just got my cockatiel yesterday who’s around 8weeks and last night she ate well but this morning she was being very picky and not getting the syringe in her mouth completely so I can’t feed her, otherwise it’ll get all over her. She did eat half of the syringe though. Also what’s the...

    Is My Baby Tiel Sick??

    I've had my baby for about a month now and just today he's closing his eyes and doesn't follow me around like he used to. He's around 2 months old and I feed him twice a day, but I don't think he's eating the actual seed, he just chews it and spits it out, but he does eat millet. He also knows...

    *URGENT* Creating A Brooder for Young Cockatiels?

    I'm about to get a 3 week or older baby cockatiel, and it'll be my first time. They said they would explain weaning, but can I have some pointers? I have a large fish tank that I can use as a brooder, but how do I sanitize it, and does the baby need a heat lamp or something? What about bedding...

    Extreme Feather Picking!

    Hello, my EE hen has recently been picked on for quite some time. Only on her back and the tip of her wings though. She's about a year old and so are the rest of my 8 hens. At first I thought it was lice/mites but I realized my RIR hen was mounting her so much that she lost her back feathers! Of...

    Do Chickens Need Daily Cuddles And Attention?

    Yes, I know they need food and water daily, but do they need cuddles and attention? My hens sit all day right by the edge of the run and wait for me. If I open the back door they all run to see me. I was wondering if I needed to spend and hour or two daily with them to fulfill their cuddle...

    Is My Easter Egger Sick??

    I have 9 one year old hens. My ee has been losing feathers, the cause of which has been thought to be mites/lice. This has been there for maybe 1-2 months now.

    Conure and Parakeet Questions

Also, I rescued a parakeet a couple months back and my 2 parakeets don’t seem to accept it. The system was I started with 2 parakeets and when one...

    Easter Egger Losing Back Feathers

    So I have nine 1 yr old hens and recently (by recently I mean roughly a couple months ago) I noticed my Easter was losing her back feathers and it has just gotten worse. She is also losing some shoulder feathers. BTW my flock is made up of hens, so no roosters (or so I think?) Sometimes the skin...

    Ticks??

    I live right by a forest, and of course there are ticks. But recently I've been seeing a lot of ticks, and I was wondering if they are harmful to my chickens, + I think they are living somewhere in my coop, so any tips on how to get rid of them?

    Easter Egger Identification

    So I have this 10 month old Easter Egger. Or at least she was supposed to be. She has slate legs, a pea comb, and lays blue eggs like an EE, but no tuffs. Her color/pattern is also very interesting. I ordered her from MPC at 1 day old. Pics are below. Let me know what you think she is a mix of...

    Raising A Baby Zebra Finch

    Okay so, I have 2 Zebra Finches. I've only owned 3 finches so far, including these two. (Poot and Pikachu) My last female could never hatch out anything, but I still loved her of course.

    Giving A Chicken A Bath?

    Sometimes, I just really want to clean my chickens dirty little feet because I like to let them run around in the house. I've never done that yet, but I'd also like to give my Buff a bath. Would she like a nice warm bath during cold winter days? I would obviously dry her off afterwards. Also, is...

    Non-Hardy Breed + Long Comb Questions

    Okay, so, this is my first year with chickens. I have nine, all of which are hardy, except one. I live upstate NY and I excepted her to be on the table by now but I fell in love, and it's beginning to get cold outside and I'm worried about her. She's a Sicilian Buttercup, which if you didn't...

    Letting A Finch Out of It's Cage

    So, recently, I've started taking my finches out of their cage and let them chill around the house. One day, I was going to catch my male finch and he flew into a window very hard. He was in shock for a couple of minutes, but he's all better now. I don't want to risk it again, but they keep...

    A while back i posted a thread similar to this, but I really need help. I have 9 seven month old hens, and almost all of them are so sweet.

    Duck, Goose.. Or neither?

    Recently, I've gotten rid of my 11 quail, and it feels a bit empty.. So, I was thinking, I have 7 month old chickens.. Why not add a duck or two?! Or geese?? Which one do you prefer? I'm thinking a smaller duck/goose because I do know ducks/geese are very messy. I don't really want a whole flock...
