    I believe one of my girls has a prolapsed vent. What do I do?

    Watery droppings

    Hello. I treated for coccidiosis around two or three weeks ago. Today one of my girls is lethargic and just kind of standing there. When she poops, it’s pretty watery. What should I check for?

    Bloody Poop - Possible Cocci

    This morning I found blood in two droppings. I suspect cocci, so I am picking up corid after work. I also ordered new bedding to replace the bedding they currently have. How else should I clean my coop? I saw ammonia and water, is that what I should do? I’m so worried I’m going to lose my...

    Weird Sounding Hen?

    I have a 5 month old barred rock hen who, for lack of a better way to put it, sounds like she smokes a pack a day. She’s always sounded a little gravely. No lethargy, good comb and wattle color, eating and drinking well. No discharge around her eyes or nose. Is this normal?

    Barred Rocks

    I have 3 barred rock chickens, about 5 months old. I thought they were all going to be hens, but the tail feathers are looking a little suspicious. They haven’t crowed or started laying yet. Anyone with experience know if these are hens or roos?

    Possible Bumblefoot?

    I’m not sure if this is bumblefoot or not. I’ve only heard about it, never seen it. She’s walking fine. I don’t see any overt scabs or anything, the black dot in the middle is just the way her skin has always been. I don’t know if this is bumblefoot or not. If it is I just want to catch it...

    Maybe a dumb question...

    So, I noticed this morning that one of my chickens has a big white patch on either side of her head. My other chickens’ are red, are these her earlobes? Is this normal? Sorry, I’m relatively new to chickens and don’t have anyone else I can ask.

    Barred Rock Comb

    I have some barred rock chickens that are about 16 weeks. Their combs look paler than what I’d expect, but they’re not acting sick or injured. I’ve attached pictures, they have plenty of shade and access to water. Is this normal?

    What breed is this? Wyandotte?

    The white chicken. And it’s a rooster correct? This is the second, possibly third rooster I have in my flock of 13. Is there a way for them to coexist? Should I just get another coop for the roosters?
