    Oh thank you so much! I really appreciate you taking the time to reach out to him on my behalf. I wondered if my emails were going straight to a spam folder or something. I’m glad to know that all is well on their end :) Thank you again!

    James Marie Farms

    Does anyone know if everything is alright at James Marie Farms? I placed an order in October and was supposed to receive it in November and I never did, and since November I have emailed 4 times and called and left messages 2-3 times and haven’t received any response. I’m not mad at all and I...

    Duckling emergency ?

    Thank you both for responding. I'm giving them a lot of tlc but have lost 5 so far--I've never had so many perish, so it's really sad. I just hope they're not sick with anything.

    Chicken 911

    I removed the dish of water because I didn’t want her to fall into it and drown herself.

    Chicken 911

    Thank you :) I will keep a close eye on her tonight, she is currently in the house in a laundry basket with towels for cushion and then I have one draped over the basket just to try and reduce any further stress. If she does have food in her crop tomorrow morning I'll be back here asking how to...

    Chicken 911

    Ok guys, my local veterinarian is unable to see my chicken until Monday, which will for sure be too late, I think. She is a 4.5 month old blue ameraucana from Meyer, I had her vaccinated by the hatchery. I have about 60 chickens total and they all appear healthy, they're all super spoiled so I...
