    Hideous growth on leg

    Thank you for responding. I guess I'll have to euthanize her. Waaaa! Is cancer prevalent in chickens because this is my 5th chicken that's died because of cancer (plus one dog) I'm starting to wonder if it's environmental as I live in the Sierra Nevada foothills in California where mining could...

    Hideous growth on leg

    About 6 months ago I noticed one of my 5 year old blue-laced Wyandottes had a very hard, callous-like “growth” on her leg. She was the only one of my chickens to show signs of having scaly leg mites so I figured it must have something to do with that. I soaked her legs in warm water & Epson salt...

    I am not a monster

    I was wondering the same things...the stress...bursting cysts in struggle... could be one of those or all of those...I think it was just a perfect storm so to speak...a very weird perfect storm

    I am not a monster

    I think I felt compelled to share this story in hopes that somebody out there has had a similar experience and will comment so I know I’m not completely crazy. Ok so for the past three days I’ve been sharing our spare bedroom with one of my rescue hens, Sarah. She had been showing all the...

    Chicks trippin'

    Thank you for your reply, I didn't think it was wry neck because I thought they only looked upwards with wry neck??? Coronavirus has made buying anything a challenge these days any suggestions where I can get it? What form does it come in & how much do I give them? Thanks again

    Chicks trippin'

    Incubated eggs hatched 19 days ago ...15 new healthy chicks... until a couple of days ago I noticed one of them constantly moving it's head in a downward twist but still eating and drinking and seemingly healthy...now 2 more are doing it and the 1st one seems worse. It acts like it's...

    chick vaccines

    I just rescued 4 feral chicks from their squalid living conditions in a ghetto neighborhood. They are the size of the 3 day old chicks I get from the local feed store, however they are starting to get feathers so I'm not sure how old they are. They are probably small for their age as they have...

    Red Tailed Hawk Attack. Chicken hurt badly. Suggestions needed.

    The fact that your girl is standing is a very good sign. Keep her wounds clean, keep her hydrated and I'm sure she'll make a full recovery. However, if she doesn't it's not the end of the world... it may be a blessing in disguise. I only say this because an owl attacked changed my life forever...

    Owl Attack

    Lately we've been watching a great horned owlet learning how to hunt way out in our pasture...it's so cute.....or so I thought until the little ******* snatched one of my chicks. (Let me start off by saying that having lost at least 25 chickens to predators in the last 3 years, my fiancee and I...
