    CRD or something else at play?

    **not an emergency** On September 18th, one of my three-year-old hens unexpectedly passed away. She had absolutely no symptoms, just woke up to let them out, and found her dead. I ruled her death out to be asphyxiation. She was discolored (purple/blue) and had fluid seeping from her mouth. I've...

    I have reason to believe one of my 3 year old hens is currently dying. Her comb is purple, she's gasping, she's resting her beak on the floor, etc. I'm considering possible injury? She was laying just before this, perfectly fine, and then she jumped down and stumbled out of the coop. She had bad...

    I've been going back and forth about this.. but I'm just gonna bite the bullet and try to get the opinions of others. My life has a tendency to go wrong all at once. I woke up unsuspectingly to a dead bird, strange. Poor baby died of asphyxiation, I took her out and buried her right away. Then I...

    Sleepy birds ?

    I'm just wondering.. is it normal for an adult hen to fall asleep in my lap? Whist I was holding one of my sweeter hens (she came to me on her own) she started drifting off. Now, I'm no stranger to my birds perching on me but it always worries me when they end up falling asleep on the way, she...

    What would be the best overall dewormer for geese & ducks? I have 5 adult geese and 8 adult ducks that live together and I'd like to get them all wormed, but I'm having trouble finding something that would be safe for them. Any info is appreciated!

    Reluctant geese ??

    I've had my geese for about three years now, and have never had this issue before. I'm not sure if I'm just being way over paranoid or if there might be something to this, haha. Lately, my geese, who've gone in willingly for so long now are suddenly not wanting to. I'm still able to herd them in...

    Blind chicken?

    So, I'm not entirely sure what's up with my hen. I was sitting with them like always, she seems fine, she's energetic as always and healthy, but her left eye is grey, instead of the usual firey-amber. It doesn't seem to bother her at all but I doubt its normal, let me know what this might be...

    my one year old hen has worms! I was noticing my girl was acting a little strange, not coming into the yard as much, losing weight, so I decided to watch her for a bit. Once she had pooped, i noticed a white worm wiggling around in her poo. Any suggestions for dewormers?

    Goose not ooening wings and losing feathers

    I noticed my one year old female brown chinese goose not opening her wings to fly off with the rest of her flock like usual. Shes missing feathers on her chest, and back, and shes pretty thin. She did just get over the habit of sitting on some duck eggs, could this be a deficiency of some kind?

    Minor Injury or something worst?

    so, yesterday i noticed my 2 year old hen limping badly. Today it still hasnt gotten any better. Whilst shes still getting around, she is a pretty big girl, about the size of my year old rooster Zeus. I dont see any cuts, swelling, or deformity. Could my rooster have been a little rough on her...
