    Young rooster crowing constantly

    Hello everyone. I have a young three month old bantam rooster that has been crowing almost constantly since he learned how to crow. The crowing doesn't bother me at all, but the thing is.... I'm not allowed to have roosters at all where I live. So this little guy is a house pet. But he crows...

    Bad case of foot picking....

    So I am having a pretty bad problem with picking in my flock of 6 hens. Foot picking, to be more precise. My hens are starting to pick at each other's feet, to the point where one of my hens can't even be outside without some kind of bandage, or they will pick at her feet so bad they are...

    Feathers are breaking off. Any ideas?

    Hello, I'm not sure if this is in the right section of the forums, but I have a question. I have a hen that is almost two years old. She lives in our house, and because of the climate difference, she didn't molt this winter like the rest of the hens outside did. That isn't at all concerning...

    Leghorn has bumblefoot. Treated her, but she's getting worse. What more can I do for her?

    I noticed a few weeks ago that one of my leghorns started forming a small bump on the top of her foot. I inspected it, and the bottom of her foot, and assumed it was just a small growth. Well, I noticed on Monday that her foot was starting to become very swelled around the pad of it, and the...

    Two hens won't stop picking open EE's back. I've tried everything....

    Over the past two months, two of my hens have been picking on my EE. She's at the bottom of the pecking order, so she's their target. It went from a simple peck on the head to tugging out the feathers on her back and pecking big spots in her back. I have taken my EE out of the coop three times...

    Hen getting really beat up due to winter-time boredom

    A few weeks ago I noticed that my girls were starting to pull out each other's feathers. Especially my Easter Egger's. Her beard is almost completely pulled out due to boredom. I have tried hanging cabbages, and giving the girls all kinds of table scraps, hoping to keep them busy and to stop...

    Need a bit of help understanding the pecking order

    For years I have raised chickens, and I have always had a rooster. Up until two months ago. We just moved into the city limits and sadly could not take our rooster with us. My rooster was always top of the pecking order, but he was never overly bossy or mean to the girls. Now that I know...
