    Egg Stuck...

    One of my hens, RubyRuberton, has had egg binding for about a week now. Her vent seems to have a bulge so that's good I think as she's managed to move it slightly. I have given her Tums bits, Salt Bath, Secluded and given Electrolytes to her water. She wants to be active and is still eating well...

    Completely Messed up my Flock Hierarchy

    Recently tried to reintroduce a recovered hen after a weasel incident to the remaining two I have. Used a modified dog crate and put her inside the run. What followed was pure and complete, unadulterated chaos. Was like I had a front row seat to a cock fight within 10 minutes of setting the...

    Post Weasel Attack Possible Blindness

    Currently have a house chicken in recovery from a weasel attack I walked in on. She had two 1-2" holes in the side of her neck near her earlobes. Thought she was a goner but had this amazing drive to live so I am giving her that chance. Almost two weeks later her wounds have covered themselves...

    I have been looking online a recently to replace some of my girls that sadly didn't hold out well with a weasel attack, health issues and the like. Wanted to go with started pullets to avoid the issues with having roosters (Which I love, just can't have them where I rent). $165 for a 1.5 old...

    Silkie Cockerel or Hen??

    This rather pretty bird was left on my lawn a few days ago. With a lot of patience I managed to catch it tonight. Don't think its more than a few months old, but I don't own any Silkies and I have no idea if its a hen or rooster. Thanks in advance.

    I Can't Figure This Out

    Have several issues all evolving around one. Recently has a year and half old Austrolorp go broody and had her separated from he rest. Before I separated her, I noticed the rest of the flock was treating her like complete sh*t when she would come out for a few minutes to eat, drink and dust...
