    Chick’s eye

    eBay? I never considered that! I assumed that if it wasn't for sale here then it wouldn't be allowed into the country. Also, postage from the US and import fees can often be more expensive then the products themselves. Thank you for that idea, though. I will look into the eBay option! I had...

    Mites in my Waterer

    Fire. I am not joking - not completely anyway. I got sick of the mite invasion earlier this year and got my flame weeder and went to town in the coop. I was hesitant to use any stronger chemicals and they were EVERYWHERE! Crawling up my legs and all over the feeders and waterers too! However...

    Chick’s eye

    Is the watery discharge thin like tears? Or is it a bit thicker and mucous-y? I have a chick in a similar situation. I think I read somewhere that chicks shouldn't be getting respiratory infections at such an early stage. I have no idea why they wouldn't, but I started with flushing my chick's...

    Chick’s eye

    Was the chick's eye like that when it was born? Or did this appear a day or so afterwards?

    Chickens exposed to raw human sewage from store in front of our home

    I second this. I would get in touch with someone within the local government and ask to be directed towards or provided the policy or legislation that requires this outcome. Additionally, there may be other methods to remedy this situation. If you get an undesirable response I wouldn't stop...

    Could you please post some additional photos? I would suggest that you try to treat its legs and see how it goes - following the information on the website provided by humblehillsfarm. But on further inspection there appears to be more going on with the chicks legs and feet. I would still...

    Advice needed: exposed and torn crop

    Not a problem! I am sorry I can't be more helpful. Its stressful when you don't know what to do and acting promptly can be vital. Have you tried a google search for birds in general who have exposed crops? I imagine that this is not an uncommon occurrence for our feathered friends.

    Advice needed: exposed and torn crop

    When I was a child I looked after a Peaceful Dove who burst open its crop when it flew into the wall. The Dove healed up despite the fact that I likely never considered things like infection or gluing the crop together. It is also possible I have forgotten that I actually did take some sort of...

    Very urgent! Intestine or umbilical cord?

    I am so happy to read that the chick didn't get culled! I am not sure about the other issues you had listed, but I imagine intestines are much larger than the string in your photo, the navel didn't look concerning and if she was assisted to hatch too early, the head swelling may just be the...

    Help please baby chick is dying

    Is that bubble its crop? If it can drink (even if you just drip liquid onto its beak), give it an electrolyte solution (e.g., Gatorade or whatever is available where you are) immediately to give it some energy. I have read that other people use sugar water; you might be able to access this sooner.

    Comment by 'J-Danger' in article 'Moringa The Master Healer For Chickens & Treatment Of AVIAN ARTHRITIS'

    What's the difference between Moringa oleifera vs Moringa pterygosperma? The text of your article mentions Moringa oleifera, but the photos of the tablet container specifies it contains Moringa pterygosperma.

    Chick not eating/drinking, not pooping, gasps, click sound when breathing. Please help!

    Do you have any ideas about what could have caused his swollen belly? And the 'gas'? His 'bottom' was also yellow. Like an egg yolk kind of yellow. I didn't get any photos of his bottom/vent area last night because I was trying to get his belly warm. But I have photos of when he was hatched...

    Chick not eating/drinking, not pooping, gasps, click sound when breathing. Please help!

    My little one is gone. At about 11pm his belly was really tight and felt cold, and it was hard to warm up. I think the pressure inside his belly was making him gasp so much. It happened again later and I just couldn't get his belly to warm up again. I was holding the chick closer to the heat...
