    What are these growths?

    One of my splash Brahamas woke up looking like this. They are over her eye and on top of her beak. What are they and how do I treat them?

    Leg pains?

    My JG roo Beretta is limping on only one leg and not putting any weight on his other.As you can see, he still crows, eats, drinks, and tries to wrestle with the ladies like normal. I see no bumbles, swelling, redness, excessive heat or feel any breaks or dislocations. He is just at a year old...

    Marek's vaccine in natural born chicks.

    I finally have a broody hen who is sitting. I can't wait for the hatch, but I am curious if I vaccinate the chicks for Marek's if it will still be effective seeing as the chicks will already be outside and of such a process would "discourage" the hen from raising the chicks? And yes, I do have...

    Helping Henry

    My Buff Brahma cockerel Henry was acting lethargic and remaining hunched over, tail down and head sunk in and comb and wattles turning purple over the past 2 days. I lost two of my splash JGs this week, and my only splash cockerel was one of them. I believe he died of Marek's as my flock is...

    Vaccinating older birds

    After receiving lab results confirming, as much as a lab possibly can it seems, Mareks in my flock, I have decided to vaccinate my flock ranging in age from almost a year to 5 years old, 30 birds in all. Where are the best sources to get the vaccine from, and where would the best injection site be?

    Moving forward with Marek's...

    My cockerel Galil went in for a necropsy this past Wednesday and the preliminary report found lymphoma lumps in several areas likely caused by Marek's. Granted it is an educated guess, but with it being so prevalent the odds favor it being Marek's or at least similar like avian leukosis...

    Hope this passes...

    My Brahma cockerel, from a breeder, has had runny green/yellow poop for the going on 3 days now. He is eating and drinking, not alot though. He keeps to himself, and does not fight when I hold him. He does walk fine, just seems either lethargic or calm in his manner. No lice/mites, no eggs I...

    Not sure what I'm dealing with...praying its not Marek's...

    So I noticed one of my buff blue Brahma pullets acting lethargic this morning and squawking this evening and not standing. However, she does move her legs and can stand some but seems off balance, with her head occasionally held low. Her crop is empty but I did notice some greenish poop on her...

    Two ladies are not laying...

    So, my splash Wyandotte and SF hen, both about 2 years old now, have not laid for 2.5-3 weeks now, minus twice where I found the remains of a yolk in the eggbox, nothing else. These 2 have had constant poopy butts and are finishing up both lice and scaly leg mite treatments. They have lost 2...

    Lice preventitive?

    I had to put down one of my SF hens today, its been rough, 2 SF hens gone in a week. On some of the scabs by the necrotic skin that the vet removed, she found lice under the scabs eating the skin. She was inside seperated from my other birds since mid July, however I have two roos that shared...

    What is happening?

    I have experienced my first unknown chicken death. I came home to find one of my SF hens already beyond the ability to help, but at least she didn't go alone. I am at a loss as to why, because she was fine last night and seemed good this morning minus some hesitation when she got up. The hens...

    Advice needed on this here situation

    Ok, here goes. My 10 JG chicks are 11 weeks old and have been outside in our new 6x8 coop with a 10x6 run for almost 3 weeks. They had some bloody poop, so I am on day 3 of Corid in the water and the bloody poop has almost totally disappeared. Now, the only other thing they do coccidiosis...

    Hope this isn't too difficult to treat...

    So my boy Ruger is gurgling as he breathes, and I noticed it today, as he was not doing this a few days ago. Not loud, but its noticeable. He has been inside my basement for a bit until the third coop comes in and we set up the bachelor pad. We currently have 20 new chicks in the basement, 10...

    How many coops are too many?

    How many coops do we poultry folk generally have?? I am having a third coop, our second 4x6, built and now may have a sweet deal on a fourth coop at least 4x6 in size. How many coops do you all have?? Lol, is this a recipe for chicken math disaster?? Also, can a 4x6 coop be good for say 4...

    What is this??

    So now my BLR Wyandotte hen has raised scales on her foot... I noticed this today, but it was not like this earlier in the week. She walks around eating and acting normal, no redness or swelling present. Would Epsom salt foot baths treat this? Is this fungal or something else?? I have no...

    More now?!?!?!?!?!?!

    And the craziness continues! So I noticed one of my BJG pullets has a healing gash like wound on her side which may have been caused by a rough mating. I noticed one tiny sand colored bug moving on the healing wound but saw no others, so not really certain it was a mite, and the coop is sand...

    Wise to get Silkies from TSC?

    Just curious, how "robust" are Silkies from TSC or any big hatchery? Any medical nightmare stories, like a larger than normal propensity for, ssy, wry neck or other issues? Or, are they overall healthy and a good buy if breeding/showing are not a concern??

    Am I dealing with early bumblefoot or not?

    So I noticed my boy Gunner walking a bit gingerly today, so at roost time I took these pics of his feet, and saw thisIt looks and feels like a simple scab, not very deep, no redness, warmth or swelling. Should I just let be and monitor? Or should I be doing something to begin treating it??

    Ten month old JG pullet with wry neck

    Howdy, so I discovered this morning that one of my pullets has wry neck, apparently developed overnight. I have gone through past threads here, but there are some questions that weren't seemingly answered in past posts. It seems Vitamins E and B12/B complex work best, for liquid how much would...
