I noticed his left wing seemed to have a couple of odd feathers sticking odd that were attached to what looked to be his...

    Not an emergency just wondering about dewormer

    I currently have chickens and hoping to get peafowl eventually ( as soon as possible ) I know that chickens can transfer black head and other diseases to peafowl through parasites, I heard that if you mix diatomaceous earth into your chickens feed it will kill the worms in the chickens system so...

    Hawk killers? Liege Fighter?

    14 pounds! WOW. I wish these birds were compatible with my current flock. For anyone who owns these, how agile are they? Like how high up do they like to roost and how high up can they roost without hurting themselves? 5ft? 10ft 12ft?

    Looking for Egyptian Fayoumi

    4 of the eggs have hatched, none of the other eggs show signs of popping but they were put in a couple of days later so I will wait to see if they hatch, although there is a bad smell coming from the nest.

    Looking for self sufficient chickens.

    To clarify I do give them food, they get an all around pellet, although the foraging for themselves is a much appreciated trait. My chickens also go into a coop that is closed at night. I live down near the river which means 24/7 I am surrounded by coyotes, raccoons, skunks, bobcats, and hawks (...

    Looking for self sufficient chickens.

    Last spring I ordered 2 Egyptian fayoumi, a golden Campine, and a Sumatra chick. I ordered the Egyptian fayoumis and Golden Campine because I read that they were fairly self sufficient chickens that could forage for most or all of their own food if given the space and would be the last to be...

    Rooster with respiratory problems

    After I post this thread I am going to search BYC for anything similar to this, but I wanted to post this for anyone who might be able to immediately identify the problem. I had noticed a few times that my cockeral had a hard time breathing in the past after a lot of running, but I chalked it up...

    Clipping a rooster'z spurs???

    I know this is not at all the answer you are looking for, but leave them, roosters have spurs for a reason, and they are sharp for a reason. You might get cut by him if you go grab him while he’s fighting, but if he fights off something that goes for the hens, you’ll be thankful for those spurs.
