    Emergency! Hen badly wounded.

    Problem with ads?

    Is anyone else getting broken links in place of ads? I am on an iPhone 7 viewing BYC on my web browser (safari). Some ads are displaying fine but others are just boxes of gibberish.

    When will I know if he is a good one?

    What type of worms are these?

    Just found these two large white worms in the poop of my 7.5 week old cockerel. The poop was fresh and one worm was actively moving when I noticed it. Are they round worms? Or tape segments? Is it safe to worm such a young chicken? Any advice much appreciated!

    Abnormal poop

    I have six chickens. Two 1 year old ISA browns and four 8 month old pullets (1 is a speckled Sussex and the other three are LF Cochins). About three days ago I noticed a few redddish poops when I cleaned my trays. I found more red poop more today. The red looks like little strand of tissue? I am...

    Victim of Chicken Math

    Last November, my husband found an abandoned, newly hatched chick in our backyard. We had had chickens before, but not for awhile. I was so excited about the new little one!
