    HELP! Broken Lower Jaw?!?!

    Yes, it’s a very grave situation. Her beak isn’t broken at all. HOWEVER, the skin in between her upper and lower beak is torn and her lower beak/jaw just flops about.

    HELP! Broken Lower Jaw?!?!

    Thank you! Please tell us what you might try. We’ve called the only vet within 100 miles who handles chickens and she said there was nothing she could do. Having said that, this vet is an idiot and we would not trust her with any of our chickens anyway. We tried that last year and she was...

    HELP! Broken Lower Jaw?!?!

    She has no other wounds on her at all. We’re on thinking she may have crash landed from roosting in a tree. Most of our hens are molting right now.

    HELP! Broken Lower Jaw?!?!

    We walked out this morning and found Ruby walking around normally...but with what looks like a horribly painful BROKEN LOWER JAW. The skin is torn on the left side of her beak and her lower jaw just hangs open and flops about. Is there any way to save her?

    Can chickens eat fox meat?

    Do you eat meat? I ask because clearly the ANIMALS belong here and WE DON'T. We've taken over their natural habitats, destroyed entire species and forced others to relocate. So, if you eat meat, ESPECIALLY factory-farmed and torturously-raised meat, you are speaking in hypocrisy. If you're a...

    How much for certified organic pastured eggs where you live?

    I'm wondering how much certified organic pastured eggs go for in your neck of the woods. Do you only see these types of eggs at the grocery store or do you also see them at farmer's markets? Thanks so much for chirping in!

    Can chickens eat fox meat?

    So, we had a fox take one of our beautiful hens yesterday. We're so sad as it happened when our LGD happened to be inside the house! He attempted to get two but our Rhode Island Red got away with just a handful of feathers missing. Praise the Lord! It was just a baby fox. Today, my husband...

    Recently Broody Hen Now Antisocial

    We can’t tell as it’s too tight for us to see in there. We always allow our hens to go broody and never try to break it as we don’t want to take that away from them. Her chicks are 8.5 weeks old now and she spends nights in there when she comes in to roost. If we see her, we open the door to...
