    Abandoned baby turkey????!!

    I need help fast. I was on a walk in the suburb and I saw a shivering little ball of fluff. Turns out, it’s an abandoned little turkey baby that hadn’t been able to jump over the curb. It’s only a day old, and I raised chicks so I have what I think is all the equipment I need. I’ve just read...

    Sour Crop

    Okay, I just posted a thread about squirrels but I’m a little stressed about my cuckoo Marans, Comet. Normally, she would wander wander away from me, so I can slightly pet her, but not for long. So, I did some research and I was pretty confident she had sour crop. I live in a suburban area, so...

    Squirrels in the Coop!!!!

    I was just wondering, how does everyone keep squirrels and rodents out of the coop? I have 8 chickens, and I’m not sure if squirrels bring diseases but I just don’t want them eating the feed. I’ve seen them in the yard and scaling the walls of the coop. I hope they won’t attack me. What do I do...

    What do I do?

    I have 8 chickens as seen in my signature,and my Wyandotte was picking on everyone, my ameraucana in particular. She is in a cage the size of the ones in the fairs, and the first day I thought she might hurt herself so I made improvements. She was at the top of the pecking order, and she’s been...

    Miscolored eggs?

    When chickens first start laying, are their first 2-3 miscolored? I found my first egg in the nesting box 2 days ago (first with shell) and I just assumed it was my RIR because she is closest to point of lay (I thought) so I posted this picture and some suggested it my speckled Sussex that laid...

    Why are my chickens so small

    I have 8 chickens as in my signature, born March 5. They will officially be 5 months old in a few day but they are sooooo small! I don’t know if this is an issue that can be solved, but it’s just strange to me. I took them off of starter feed at 18 weeks exactly. 2 of them are squatting, but is...

    Blind Chicken?

    i think my light brown leghorn is blind in one eye. Both eyes look the same, no difference, but when I hold out 1 mealworm, she misses every time. If I hold out a small handful she can get one, but she still has trouble. She is 4 months old. Any other things that it could be? I’m just worried...

    Weird feathers...

    I think my CM is being picked on a lot. We got her as an 8 week old hen, and she was smooth and her feathers were perfect, but now she’s 16 weeks old, and her feathers look shredded a little. Is this stress, being picked on, or just molting? This is on her tail-end.

    Cuckoo Marans or Barred Rock?

    i bought a now 5 week old chicken that the farm store had sexed as a Pullets, and as a Cuckoo Marans, but now that I look closer, she looks a lot like a rooster Barred Rock.

    Silver Laced Wyandotte Rooster?(plus single comb)

    I ordered a silver laced Wyandotte and it arrived 4 weeks ago yesterday. I was looking at her comb, because I ordered a hen, but it’s growing very quickly, and it has a very red comb. It also has just one spike when I read they are supposed to have a rose comb-I’m a beginner at raising chickens...
