    Limping silver pheasant

    Today I noticed my male silver pheasant was limping. He stands on one foot and holds the other on up and curled up. When he walks he really favors this foot and only slightly opens it. It is kinda like he is walking on his fist. Other than this he doesn't seem to have any other injuries and...

    Safe-guard wormer dosage?

    I am getting ready to worm my pheasants after wazine 17 a while ago. I have liquid safe-guard goat dewormer at 10%. What would the dosage be for the pheasants? I saw one that was 2 1/4 to 3 ml/gallon for three days. Is that reasonable? Thanks for any help or advice you can give.

    After wazine, how soon do I treat with different wormer.

    I just treated my birds with wazine. In a little research I found that after a while I should treat with a different wormer that will kill larve. So how soon should I use this and any suggestions?

    Dominique rooster? Suspicious tail....

    They hatched in mid April, I think, and are supposed to be around 90% hens. I noticed today that the chicken with the red arrows pointing at him is getting some more curved tail feathers then the others. Think he's a rooster? Sorry that the pics aren't the best, you will probably want to zoom in.

    Nest box capacity

    I recently rebuild part of my coop and went down to two nest boxes, all then hens(8, not frequent layers) used. I set these up one above the other, but the hens prefer the bottom box. I put a small board in for a ramp to encourage them to use the top box. At how many eggs in each box should I...

    Hatching wormed pheasant eggs?

    Next weekend I'll have to worm my pheasant with wazine again. I know my silvers could lay anytime(though last year they only laid a few eggs late in the year) and how long should I wait to collect the eggs for hatching? I know the normal withdrawal period is around two weeks.

    Commenting on pics covered

    I am usually on byc mobile on an iPad. When viewing pics I can't give them ovation, but I can see the bottom of where it should be. Edit: Ignore the ovation part, it appears that I can't give it. But the x is covered, or the pic number on the bottom is cut off, like when I viewed this.

    Worms in poop

    While I was feeding my birds today and was leaving the lady Amherst pen I saw my male poop a very stinky yellow poop. From a distance it looked like it was moving. After looking I saw a dozen 1/2 inch long worms wiggling. What are these and how should I treat them?

    What are some sings that your coop is too humid/cold?

    Hopefully I posted this in the right forum. This fall I patched some holes on my coop because last winter the chickens didn't seem to be handling the cold well, and there were some very large holes. The coop is 4'x4' and has 12 chickens and a duck in it. The bird spend the day in our...
