    Chickens have runny noses and coughs. HELP!!!

    Went outside yesterday and one of my 22 week olds (not laying yet), was by herself, drooling from her beak, puffed up and very lethargic. She’s making a kind of gargling/heavy breathing sound and it’s like she keeps kinda sneezing. The drool from her beak was clear, thicker. She’s almost just...

    Chickens drooling and lethargic, HELP!

She’s making a kind of gargling/heavy breathing sound and it’s like she keeps kinda sneezing. The drool from her beak was clear, but thicker. Doesn’t seem to be anything...

    What killed her? *Graphic.

    I went outside this morning, and my favorite hen Martha, was murdered. She was in one of their nesting places, so at first I thought she was just laying an egg. When I went to look though, she was dead. There was a ton of her feathers, in two different places. No blood anywhere. My other 3 that...

    Help! Will he live?

    Our rooster got attacked the night before last. By a opossum we believe. I was running late for work in the morning so they didn’t get checked until 1:30pm. They always still have food and water so I wasn’t worried. When I found him he already had maggots in the wound, we cleaned him up as best...

    HELP! Rooster attacked by a opossum!

    He's by himself at the moment. He has head and eye injuries. A few small chunks of flesh are missing from his head. All the head feathers are gone and he looks very bad. I'm new to chickens only had them since May, and I have no idea what to do. He's one of my favorites and I would appreciate...

    Pullet closing eyes while standing up. HELP!

    I was outside with my girls a couple hours ago and out of nowhere I noticed that my 18 week old Cochin was standing up and closing her eyes. I had already been with them an hour and she hadn’t done it, but once she started she keeps doing it. She isn’t dropping her head exactly, just drooping it...

    Chocolate Orpington, what gender?

    We got these 4, and honestly have no idea what they are. We know one is crowing, but they look so alike, we still can’t hardly tell them apart. Two of them are bigger, then the others. I believe they’re 14 or 15 weeks old. We’ve had them since they were about 6 weeks and they are so unfriendly...

    Cream LegBars...?

    We got them from a man who said they were both female, but one has started crowing! This is our first flock, so we’re very new to this. Lizzie Borden has a lot more yellow on her legs and more vivid coloring. Claudia isn’t crowing, but we’re worried about her as well. They’re currently 15 weeks...

    Is my silkie crossed Americana a roo or female?

    Just got my first chickens a few days ago and they’re all six weeks. One is a black silkie crossed with an Americana and the farmer wasn’t sure what gender because it’s half silkie. Said he’ll give us another if it does turn out a roo, but I’m already very attached. We can’t have Roos in our...
