    A lot of people get very offended when you give chickens treats. They have the mindset that they’re supposed to be shut up and protected and kept out of the weather and fed rationed pellets all day. They forget chickens have emotions and have their own desires as well. I feed my chickens healthy...

    They are golden comets. It’s not cold. I don’t have males. I mixed it into the feed a little at a time as they all had weak egg shells, and they all needed it. They won’t eat the crushed oyster shell unless I throw it in with their feed... I never use heat lamps for that reason, and because...

    Bullying and not eating enough. She applauded me for the added calcium and the treats. Thanks. 🙄 edit: the occasional treats.

    A handful of black oil sunflower seeds every couple of days for a flock of 7 birds during molt won’t make them all fat in 3 days. The molt started a couple days ago, I did too. Hmm...

    Alright, and here’s where assumptions and misunderstandings always leads... a debate. 1. If my layer feed, that I feed all my chickens, had the proper calcium, then why the soft shells and the vet recommendation of added oyster shell and protein after a vet visit when a chicken had soft bones...

    🚨 Potential Dying Hen? Help??!

    Hmm, could’ve had me. I was always told to throw them a treat out every couple of days, like a handful of grain, or let them eat bugs and worms. I kinda figured eating Layena Layer Pellets gets old, especially since they lack the sufficient amount of calcium. So much for balanced. Oh well 🤷‍♂️...

    I never said anything about French fries... I’m definitely not that much of an idiot... snacks include black oil sunflower seeds, worms, freeze dried mealworms, bugs, fresh vegetables and garden scraps...

    🚨 Potential Dying Hen? Help??!

    Yes yes I meant comb I apologize, I was in a rush typing 😅 I don’t think it’s the hose, that’s the first time I sprayed the hens. They literally grabbed her by the neck and 3 of them were tearing her up and I was on the other side of the fence. What was I supposed to do?? I did what I could...

    It feels like her crop.... empty.. I had a chicken with sour and impacted crop once.. It could be that, but I’m not sure... she’s acting different... I’ll keep an eye out.. I had a chicken that had impacted crop from eating sand... I had to massage her crop to get her to vomit the sand back...

    🚨 Potential Dying Hen? Help??!

    She’s eating and drinking a little... she pooped... her butt looks dirty, not sure how to handle that... she’s sleepy (spots on her beak are from the egg).. I felt the bump on her chest where her crop is, could it just be an empty crop? I’m so worried and confused and baffled...

    🚨 Potential Dying Hen? Help??!

    I checked her and I’ve noticed a bubble on her chest where her crop should be. I felt it gently and she didn’t seem to like it but she will let me touch her anywhere else... what is it??
