    Treating Coop for pests

    What is the safest and most effective way to treat a coop for pests, in particular stick fast fleas? I have dirt floors and wanna treat this, but scared of using something that might make the chickens sick if they injest it. During the day between 6am and 6pm they free range, so could...

    Breathing difficulties

    A friend gave her to me after someone dropped her into their produce shop. She was found being attacked by magpies. They thought she was a duckling. I have no other information besides that. It’s really not a super important thing to know, just something that I wanted to know, really so I can...

    Breathing difficulties

    I’ll get some better photos when I can get to my computer. She’s hard to take good pics with my phone cause she always comes right up to me. I have some better ones on my camera I think. I had been thinking Embden but I was thrown by the pink beak and feet cause every discription I’ve read said...

    So it’s been like a month and my little goose baby has grown huge! Any chance anyone knows what breed she is? She (or he) is all white with a pink beak and pink feet. Most breeds I’ve come across in searches are all orange beak and feet...

    Breathing difficulties

    She (I call her a she, but I’m not at all certain on that yet ) Is the most divine little thing, I have completely fallen in love with her! I never thought of owning a goose but I was given her to care for after someone found her being attacked by magpies. She was looking a lot worse for wear in...

    Breathing difficulties

    Thank you all for taking the time to reply I’d been stressing so much about her. She improved considerably after 2 days on the oxymav, and after another dose on day 3 she’s now back to her normal self again!

    Gosling with breathing difficulties

    I have a little gosling who has developed some difficulty breathing. She often makes a whistling sound as she breathes, and you can see the skin pulling in just below her neck every time she inhaled. She is breathing quite fast, open beaked. At times she’ll give her head a bit of a shake and...

    Sleeping chickens outdoors

    I had to change the sleeping arrangements around 4-5 months ago. Most of the chickens worked it out within the first few nights, but these few just wouldn’t sleep there. I do have a couple of chickens that aren’t mine, that would come and sleep in my trees at night, maybe they were influenced by...

    Sleeping chickens outdoors

    Does anyone here allow their chickens to sleep outside in the open? I used to be pretty fussy about mine, but I have a few stubborn chooks that won’t sleep where I want them to sleep. One insists on being in a tree, and it’s too hard to get her down once she’s up. So I’ve started leaving the...

    Chicken pecking away flesh at tail end, how can I make her stop?

    I have a chicken that has been pecking away the flesh on her tail end. I took her in a few months ago, along with another chicken she was living with, that would constantly peck at her. She was in poor condition at the time. I kept her seperate for a while but when I put her out with my other...

    Just a little update on my chicken babies! It seems I was lucky enough to get 10 hens out of the 13 chicks!

    Australia - Six states..and that funny little island.

    Looks like mites to me... When I checked her over quickly this morning, I couldn't see any on her, but I could only check her quickly cause she's not very quiet and doesn't like being held. There were heaps in the cat carrier (where she sleeps at night) though. I read somewhere that some mites...

    Australia - Six states..and that funny little island.

    Need help!! What's the best thing to use to treat for lice/mites? Just noticed that one of my little hens has tiny crawlies! None of my chickens have ever had them, but a few years ago, the chickens we had at work did, and they were treated with the wrong stuff and it ended up killing them! I...

    Australia - Six states..and that funny little island.

    So I noticed this morning that one of my Mumma Hens is squeaking when she breathes! She's wondering around, pecking and eating normally though. Her chickies seem okay as do all the other chickens... Anyone have any idea what it might be? I'm thinking I should seperate her from her babies but I...

    Australia - Six states..and that funny little island.

    Glad your hubby is well up his way @Teila! It's been raining at our place pretty much all day. Part of our yard has flooded. I ended up with one drenched rooster and one drenched little henny! The ducks are in heaven though!

    Australia - Six states..and that funny little island.

    I have stray cats at my place and they've never attempted anything with my chickens, even though they'll try to catch the wild birds that hang around the yard. I don't trust them with my baby chicks though, they're a little too little yet! Hopefully you don't have any problems
