    First-time broody, first-time broody owner

    Hello! My broody Cochin/Spitzhauben mix is a first-time almost mama. She is on day 18. I have had to go in to her broody area twice a day to take her off and have her eat and drink. She stopped coming off her nest in the main coop after our rooster chased her several days in a row. It took her 5...

    Whose (detached) leg is this??

    I was making dinner a few minutes ago and my son ran up holding a leg - not attached to any bird! I quickly counted our chickens: 11, whew! It's the size of a chicken leg (I think - I've got big large fowl breeds), pinkish with black nails, and grey feathers with an orangish tip. What the...

    Dosage help! Anyone use these All Bird products? (Water-soluble wormer and antibiotic)

    Anyone use these? Any idea if the dosage is right for chickens? I'd like to start my flock on the antibiotic today (already worming them after fecals and with guidance from vet). Can't currently dose 11 chickens orally 2x/day due to back injury. Also have Tylan soluble powder, but the vet...

    Help! Beloved chicken panting after Safeguard and Tylan!

    I posted a thread a few days ago after getting a fecal done on the 2 of my 11 chickens who had consistently had some loose poop (the rest have been fine). It looked like this: Parasitology Specimen Test Name Parasite Parasite Amount Jackie - Avian - Galliform / poultry - Chicken - Female - 2.5...

    If Safe-guard is the same medication as Aquasol, does that mean no egg withdrawal?

    Sorry, I have searched and searched on here, and I can't find the answer. They're both fenbendazole, so couldn't I use the same dosage of safe-guard as aquasol, and skip egg withdrawal? https://animaldrugsatfda.fda.gov/adafda/app/search/public/document/downloadFoi/3083

    Anyone successfully transition from crumbles to pellets?

    My 11 chickens (10 hens, one cockerel) were all acquired as adults, and all had historically been fed crumbles. The owner of the original two told me she had tried pellets, and they seemed to prefer starving. I found New Country Organics, as I wanted them on an organic feed - they only make a...

    New layer trouble...two soft shell eggs and now...? Please help!

    My 8 month old EE pullet has laid two soft shelled but intact eggs the last two days. I read here that it is pretty common for new layers, refreshed the oyster shell she has out free choice, and added some to my three layer feed 'stations'. Thought she took a break today, but when I went to do...

    To quarantine or not to quarantine...?

    Wait! Before you say ALWAYS quarantine, let me explain. We added 5 pullets/young hens to our flock of two (7 month cockerel and two year old hen from folks we bought our tractor coop from). The 5 hens came from a friend with a large flock who is downsizing due to an upcoming ordinance change. We...

    Guessing hen's breed (for fun)...

    I actually know this 8 month old's breeding. She's a 50/50 cross - just wondering if it's apparent to others! My two year old claimed her and named her "Ground". We love her. So, just for fun - what's your best guess? (Last pic from at breeder's, few months younger)

    What kind of rooster is this? Looks more like a New Hampshire...?

    Hi! I inherited this cockerel (7 months now), and was told he is an Asian Black rooster. I think he looks an awful lot like a New Hampshire (or even a Marans, but no leg feathers), but would love to hear from some experts! I'm a complete newbie.

    Hello, BYC!

    I've been haunting this site since 11/18, when we got our first two chickens (EE hen and an Asian Black (?) cockerel. We inherited them when we bought our chicken tractor. Added five more hens (Speckled Sussex, Dominique, New Hampshire, Gold laced Orpington, and an Appenzeller Spitzhauben/Cochin...
