    Cut on my hen's beak

    I came home to find my chicken had a cut on her beak. We have a coop and small run which is enclosed within a bigger electric fence run. I checked all the wire fencing and I didn't see any wire sticking out of the smaller run enclosure, so I'm not sure how she got injured, maybe by another...

    My leghorn hasn't laid for a week

    Hi Everyone, My leghorn and my rhode island red who started laying this summer, have been laying through the winter, occasionally taking a day or 2 off. My leghorn hasn't laid for a week and I'm kind of baffled. I don't think she's egg bound, because she has been her normal perky self and I...

    What is This Stuff on my Chicken's Head?

    Hi Everyone, My Easter Egger has had this whitish stuff on her head for a few days now. I've attached pictures below. She does not like people that much, so I won't be able to pick her up unless off the roost at night. Does anyone know what this is? Sorry the pictures aren't the best. It...

    Help! Condensation and moisture? Frostbite?

    I wasn't home this afternoon/early evening and came home to just a ton of wetness and moisture. We had 2ft of snow a few days ago, but the temperatures shot up from like 20º to 40º, and it's very wet. I've noticed much of the snow there this morning is gone this evening. When I came home, their...

    Do they need supplemental heat?

    We normally live in the city, but we are going to be at our country house from now to mid january. We have a little starter coop here, so we brought the chickens! Anyways, in the city we got maybe 8 inches of snow, but in the country, we got a good 2ft. The coop is like a basic small coop, but...

    First heavier snow with chickens

    I was getting excited about the foot of snow we will probably get this wednesday night/thursday, but now I'm a little worried about my girls. We got them in march and had a couple of snowfalls after we got them but we always just locked them in the coop for the day because they were so small...

    Do you think they need supplemental heat?

    Hi Everyone, I live in New York City. We originally got our chickens as 4 week olds in March when the pandemic hit. At the time, we were at our country house in the Berkshires (Western MA). They had a pretty small coop, and we got an omlet coop and run about a month after. We came back to NYC...

    Layer feed through the winter?

    3 out of my 4 pullets are still laying. They are on a layer feed, 16% protein I believe but I will double check. I don't know if they will continue laying through the winter, but I'm wondering if I should keep them on the layer feed or switch them to something with less protein. The one that has...

    How do you keep your chickens laying throughout the winter?

    I have 4 hens. My brahma never layed everyday, but she has pretty much stopped laying. She doesn't look like she is egg bound or anything, and is happy as usual, so I assume she's just stopped laying for the winter. My 3 other girls are still laying, and I would like to keep it that way haha...

    How high for fencing?

    I have a omlet eglu cube (you can look them up) and I am looking to get some fencing (also that omlet sells). It is 4.1ft or 1.25m tall and I have a leghorn. Do you think she would fly out? Would she be less likely to fly out if she had plenty of food, water, and friends? My other chickens are 1...

    The run is a swamp!

    I live in the city, so my 4 hens can't have a huge run. It has been raining a ton lately, and I'm wondering if they could get sick from that or something? My brahmas leg feathers are super muddy, and it's becoming a swamp. The girls still just play outside, I guess they like the rain, but...
