    Watery/mucusy poop

    She’s acting mostly normal except she just started adjusting her crop a bunch and is shaking her head, so now I’m worried about gapeworms. I think I’m going to pick up some Safeguard. Would this work...

    Watery/mucusy poop

    Hello, First time chicken owner here. My 11 week old pullet has had a lot of watery/loose poops with some clear mucus in them the past week. She has a normal poop on occasion but most of them are straight liquid with a little normal poop mixed in. She’s had quite a bit of diarrhea the week...

    Should I be worried?

    I have no idea 🤷🏻‍♀️ That’s what I thought at first. I may be overthinking. Should I put her away before it gets dark? I try to keep her out as long as possible since she’s by herself right now.

    Should I be worried?

    Hello, I’m new to the world of chickens. Long story short, an injured chick showed up on my lawn and she’s now a (hopefully temporary) house chicken. I’ve never owned a chicken before so I don’t know what’s typical behavior, but a couple things she started doing caught my attention and I don’t...

    Thank you! I’m definitely going to do that. I feel so bad leaving her in her cage at night 😢

    Found a chick

    Thank you so much! I’m so glad this little chicken found her way into my yard ☺️ I definitely see more chickens in the near future! Right now she’s really only alone at night when I’m sleeping but I do feel bad about it. I know she would love a little buddy to cuddle with. I’m hoping I can find...

    Home after getting her bandage off! She’s like a brand new chicken.

    Found a chick

    I brought her back to the vet this morning and they said she’s healing really well so they took off the bandage! She’s back to her normal self already. I’m so relieved, I could cry. This chick hasn’t left my side since I found her. I don’t have any children but I feel like this has to be close...

    Found a chick

    Day one with her bandage was pretty rough. She has these little outbursts and tries her hardest to get out of it so she’s all tangled up in it now. I have to go back to the vet tomorrow morning to get her re-bandaged. She’s so stressed out, I feel so bad. I just put her in her cage for the night...

    Found a chick

    Thanks for the advice! I might try to wrap her other wing but I feel like she won’t be able to stand at all because she’s already so top heavy. She reminds me of a little bowling pin right now 😂 She started taking little sips of water out of the bowl but I’m going to pick up a water bottle for...

    Found a chick

    Thanks! I hope so too. She has to go back to the vet in a week for a recheck so hopefully the bandage comes off then. This poor little chick has been through so much!

    Found a chick

    Update! Nugget is back from the vet! They were able to fix her wing so she only had to spend the night there instead of a week so it actually saved me a couple hundred bucks! 🙌 The vet said they cut off the dead bone and put some bone wax on it and bandaged her up. They said she shouldn’t have a...

    Found a chick

    Thank you! I’ve already learned a lot on here! State College is about 3 hours from me. I live in the Poconos, closer to the NJ/PA border and about 1.5 hours from NYC. My regular vet, who unfortunately doesn’t treat chickens, gave me a list of places that do and the first 2-3 I called were booked...

    Found a chick

    Thank you for your honest advice! I appreciate the input. I’ve always wanted to raise chickens but put the idea on the back burner until I had my own house. This is definitely not an ideal situation but I’m eager to learn and give this chicken (and future chickens) the best life possible. I live...

    Found a chick

    Thank you! I’ve been a vegetarian most of my life so a chicken is no different than a cat or dog to me. I think it imprinted on me so I’m committed to this little chicken now 😆

    Found a chick

    Yeah I think she has some PTSD from being almost eaten. She’s terrified when I take her outside. She just sits on my foot the whole time!
