    I just rescued (adopted) three chickens from the SPCA. Apparently they were very sick and had been aggressively treated with antibiotics and sulfates. Two of them are fine, one I noticed had a purple crop last week and looked sick so I brought her into the house. She had watery stool with...

    I'm SO bummed. :( PLEASE HELP!!!

    I was asking for help for my rooster a few days back. His droppings didn't seem alarming at the time, but he wasn't eating and he's lost a LOT of weight. He has deteriorated every day, and now he's stumbling a bit because he's so emaciated and weak. I syringe fed him whole milk yogurt and...

    I'm not sure I can help him :(

    Our roo is painfully thin. I noticed he was just kind of quietly sitting in a corner last week and then a few days ago I saw his comb and wattles were bluing. I've placed him beneath a heat lamp but I didn't notice anything other than deep, slow breathing. He has periods where he's not...

    pooped out pure blood?

    my daughter plays with the hens in her tree house. She's almost 12 and is very good with animals, so no suspected injury. She said the hen squatted down to poop and pure blood came out. I ran to see, and yes, it's the size of a loose stool but pure blood. Because my sick chick had some blood...

    panting and very hot - PLEASE ADVISE!!!

    my chick that I've written about is doing absolutely FANTASTIC compared to last week. She has pretty much full control of her neck and although she's still unsteady on her feet, she's able to stand and take a few steps. She thinks I'm her mama now! I'm still syringe feeding her. She's...

    has ANYONE heard of a crop not holding food?

    I can't find information ANYWHERE. Please don't read this and not respond. If you've read this and have heard of this happening, or if you have experience with this, PLEASE advise if you can. I think it's the end of the road for my chick. She's VERY strong today, has control of her...

    how much to tube/syringe feed chick?

    My chick I've been writing about is improving on the vitamins, good quality food from the vet (for dogs and cats), yogurt. I also got prednisone for my ferret and am sharing it with my chick in case her issues started from a bump to the head. The vet said to start with 1 cc and work up to 6 if...

    a new problem

    I have a thread I started yesterday. I thought my chicken broke it's neck. Then I started to suspect wry, now I'm fairly confident she either has Mareks or a deficiency which is causing her to have what appears to be uncontrollable use of her wings/legs. I think I know the course of treatment...
