    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    Thank you. We live on the west coast of Canada so it only gets to below freezing for a few days each year. Otherwise just lots of rain. She was already the most independent hen. She seems ok so far.

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    My lovely chicken has passed away. Thank you so much for all your support. I only have one chicken left now. I don’t want to get another chicken at the moment, but I’m worried that she will be very lonely. Can chickens do alright on their own? I am worried that if I introduce a new chicken they...

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    The vet called tonight and the poop sample came back that she had lung worm. I treated my chickens for this last spring as my other chicken was sick and made a full recovery. I was going to try to treat her tonight but she has rapidly declined and wouldn’t eat the medication. I don’t think she...

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    Thank you so much for your support! She has looked quite sick like this for 2 days now. I’m so hoping to speak with the vet today to hear the results of the poop sample. If there is nothing there and I can’t do anything to help her then I would like to put her down. Heartbreaking. This beautiful...

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    Aw thanks for your support! I don’t think she has an oder no. Does the swelling in her face indicate Merek’s disease too? Can it get a little better when she’s done growing her feathers in?

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    Hi Again! Now my lovely chicken is rapidly growing her feathers back but she is very ill looking. She is quiet and has her eyes closed for most of the day. Her face is still swollen.

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    Thank you for your help! I live in the city and we only ever had 3 chickens and 1 died a year ago so it’s been a year with just the 2. There was never a rooster. We got the ladies from our neighbour whose flock had scaly leg mites. Our girls have had them for years. I have treated them before...

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    They spend half of their day in their run and the other half out in the garden where they eat kale and other garden greens and scratch around. In their coop there is layer pellets. They also have access to oyster shells.

    Feather loss - not growing back as it gets cooler outside

    My lovely chicken has been steadily losing her feathers all summer. It started on her neck and vent area as it has done in past summers but now she is losing them from all over. She has almost none on her back now and has lost some on her wings. She doesn’t appear to be growing them back as she...
