    Messed up eye

    I have this pullet, she’s roughly 2 months. As you can see she has one eye that’s always looking to the back. From what I can tell this doesn’t affect her at all. She gets around fine and other flock members don’t pick on her. I was wondering what it is, what caused it, if I can somehow help it...

    Amber Link life span.

    Hello everyone, I have 2 amber link hens. They’re about 3 or 4, maybe 5 years old. They’re starting to slow down with laying eggs but otherwise are very healthy and active. I was just wondering what the average life span for this or any breed of chicken is. Thanks.

    Bloody Vent

    I went out today to give my hens some treats and saw my buff brahma had a very bloody vent. She hasn't laid in a while so I think she might be egg bound. I put her in a dark place with corn and apple cider vinegar water to try and keep her from producing more eggs.

    Sick Cockerel

    Hi guys. I have a Chocolate Cuckoo Orpington cockerel who's about 6-8 months old. The past few days he's been acting abnormal. He just sits by himself in the shade and doesn't move for hours. I think he might be too hot or maybe lethargic. He's also preening his wings a lot. So maybe he has...
