    Help my chicken's butt is huge red and swollen with yellow poop!!!

    Hi there, a couple days ago I noticed that my year old chicken's butt became swollen, red and bloody. It looks like part of her stomach is coming out of her butt. Also, she's been pooping yellow goo. She's the lowest on the pecking order due to her legs being sprained, I don't know if that's...

    My 3 weeks old baby chick isn't moving properly and always sitting down.

    I think she's in pain when moving because once she moves a little bit she sits down very quickly, almost like she's falling and her legs can't support her. She's starting to move a little bit now with her legs up but the swelling is also kind of bigger. Isn't there anything I can do? Her sister...

    My 3 weeks old baby chick isn't moving properly and always sitting down.

    I'm mostly feeding them chopped hard boiled eggs with soft wet corn (all feed stores around have only food for laying hens so I had to come up with something). I feed them treats (veggies & fruits) with grit here and there too. I will try to get a pic of her leg asap! Thank you.

    My 3 weeks old baby chick isn't moving properly and always sitting down.

    I think her poop looks just fine with a brown color. How to check for swelling of the joints? Also is there a natural source for B2? There aren't any poultry shops around where I live.

    My 3 weeks old baby chick isn't moving properly and always sitting down.

    My little 3 weeks old baby chick isn't moving properly at all, unless I give her food and then she walks a little and eats but that's it. I think she is not even walking much to the food now, but walking like in the video below. She was active a week ago. Now she's ALWAYS sitting down.. She...

    My 3 week old chick is sleepy.

    My 3 week old chick is sleepy but her two sisters are very active. That one eats when I give food, but after she eats she goes to sit/sleep under the heat lamp (33 degrees celsius). Should I give her electrolytes? What is the best recipe for 1 liter of water? Which is best; molasses or honey or...

    My 4 day old baby chick has one eye closed

    Our nearby drug store didn't have Saline eye drops so I just got the Terramycin ointment and I applied it to her eye after gently cleaning it with a warm, wet cotton swab. This was about 6 hours ago. Her eye has been open since! She closes it a little sometimes but it's almost always open! How...

    My 4 day old baby chick has one eye closed

    My 4 day old baby chick has one of her eyes closed most of the time, she opens it sometimes (even though it's slightly not all open) and then closes it after a few seconds. The surrounding area around the eye looks green and is kinda swelling I think. Also, one of the other 2 chicks that live...

    So I hatched a couple of chicks under a couple of foster pigeons. Now what?

    Would the bit of foil around the glass + the glass itself be trapping heat and therefore can cause issues? (PS: It hangs on the glass well without the metal wire but I thought it heats it too much so I hanged it on an extra metal wire)

    So I hatched a couple of chicks under a couple of foster pigeons. Now what?

    I got them a 40 watt incandescent red bulb, put it at 15-16cm height from the cardboard brooder I made with 31x21x12cm dimensions, 17C outside but it's quite warm inside though I don't know the exact room tempature. They are currently at about a 3-4 cm distance from it, sleeping next to each...

    So I hatched a couple of chicks under a couple of foster pigeons. Now what?

    I put two fertilized chicken eggs under my pigeons almost 3 weeks ago, and both of them hatched today. Is it more humane to leave them under my pigeons or do I take them out? Will the pigeons harm them somehow if I leave them the chicks? Or will they raise them until they reach a specific size...

    A complicated situation with an aggressive rooster (biting)

    A complicated situation with an aggressive rooster (biting)

    A little thing I wanted to add: the other roo doesn't hit me at all while this roo does bite me A LOT more than an average roo does (nearly every chance he gets, he creeps next to me & bites me). Also I wanted to add in the TL;DR, why did he stop eating when food is provided? Is he okay?

    A complicated situation with an aggressive rooster (biting)

    Hi there, So the situation is as follows: I got a few day old chicks from a local farmer and only one of them survived. Turns out that one is a rooster (a white, factory meat one), and here comes the issue: I already have a small flock (5 chickens and one roo) and obviously, the roosters don't...
