    Duck gender?

    I have 2 ducks who both supposedly hatched April 27th (2 months old?) The white one is a pekin and the brown one is a khaki Cambell. Or that's what they were sold to me as. Can you tell the gender at this age or is it still too early? And what signs should I look for? Thanks!

    Cold rainy weather

    I'm in Alabama where the temperature is around 46°F and it's currently raining. All of the chickens like to walk around and stand out in the rain, even when it's this cold. Should I be worried about them?

    Ivermectin Overdose?

    I have a hen who is about 2 years old I gave her some Ivermectin on her back for mites. I think I put too much on her and I don't know what to do because she's acting lethargic. And she won't eat. Is there anything that I can give her to rid it of her body

    Can antibiotics be given to chickens for more than 1 round? If so how do I do it time-wise? I posted in here not too long ago about my sick buff silkie. I gave her Tylan 50 twice a day for a week and she improved. I've also put terramycin opthalmic ointment in her eye for a about a week and a...

    Chicken eye stuck shut?

    I have a hen who is about 3 years old, her eye is stuck shut and it would take a lot for me to get it open. Her other eye is fine. She's very weak but she is eating and drinking. She is also walking around and scratching. What could this be? I've been injecting 1/4 cc of tylan intramuscularly...

    Sex of turkey poult? Bronze breasted

    This poult hatched about 2 months ago. March 21st or around there. I'm worried that it could be a tom because of the way her/his neck looks. Sometimes she (we hope she) will strut but I heard that some girls will do that. I haven't heard any gobbling but she does make some "beeping" sounds...

    Multiple issues.

    Okay so my 2ish year old hen started out with a swollen closed eye, I started to give her duramycin and it's improved a lot. Her eye is closed but no longer swollen. Then she started to limp, leading up what I think is partial leg paralysis or something like that. I'm treating her with 1ml of...

    Wry neck?

    My chicken has had an eye issue for a week now. She's been scratching it very hard and I'm worried she has wry neck because of the vigorous scratching. She is a year old tomorrow (finally did the math correctly). I'm already treating her eye with terramycin and I'm giving her poly vi sol without...
