    Old age or sickness?

    Hello everyone, One of my hens is acting very ill. Yesterday when I let them out she stayed in the coop, just sitting in the nest box. I brought her inside and checked her. Her comb and wattles are normal, there is no swelling or bloating anywhere, no heavy breathing or wheezing, but I think she...

    Internal laying again?

    So about 6 months ago I had a hen who had internal laying (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/is-my-hen-dying.1208830/) now I'm wondering if another has it. She is acting similar to my first hen but the symptoms are not as extreme. She stayed sitting on the coop floor instead of coming...

    Is it an abcess?

    I was checking my girls today and noticed something strange by one of my Easter Egger's beak. After looking at it I have some questions. Is it an abcess? Can I do anything to get rid of it? Can it cause further harm to her? How does it occur and how can I prevent it? She is acting totally normal...

    Is my hen dying?

    Hello fellow BYCers, While letting the girls out this morning I noticed my oldest bird Samoa didn’t come out. She was lying on the floor of the coop. Her breathing sounds bad, like someone with a really bad cold. I picked her up and placed her in the run, she immediately just sagged down. She...

    Red Sex-link Hybrids?

    So I'll just cut to the chase and say its about confusion of Red sex-link hybrids. I've heard so many different names for these birds that all look the same, my questions are: Are they grouped as red sex-links and the other names branch off from there? Lets see if I can say this better. You are...

    What is considered an Easter Egger

    I have read so much (on this site and off) and have been told about Easter Eggers and what is considered an Easter Egger but they all have different ideas what an Easter Egger is . Is it just a mixed breed with the blue egg gene? But how come some people say that it can lay any color? Does it...

    Pictures not showing up?

    I was in the "What Breed or Gender is This?" forum and on any thread I went to the pictures wouldn't show up (even photos I saw the day before suddenly stopped showing up). I went to the "Raising Baby Chicks" forum and they aren't showing up there either. Is it just my computer or is anyone else...
