    Oh no, I have made a BIG mistake. HELP

    @casportpony - my bad! I have been thinking about what you said, and you are never (or at least very rarely) wrong about such things as dosages!:old I went back and checked the label, and you are right - the label says 1ml for 10kg live weight, but the prescription the vet gave me says 1ml...

    Oh no, I have made a BIG mistake. HELP

    That's the Baytril dose the vet gave me :confused: (I haven't killed any of my girls yet with it! ;) :fl)

    Oh no, I have made a BIG mistake. HELP

    I use Baytril 10% dosed directly in the beak of the bird at 1ml per 10kg (2.2lb) live weight, followed by a treat of a few grains of sweetcorn to get rid of the taste! ;) I never add it to the water - we have extremely hard water here and I usually only want to treat 1 bird at a time - not the...

    Oh no, I have made a BIG mistake. HELP

    You can't go back and change what happened, so you just have to keep looking forward. It's happened, you feel terrible (as would we all), but in the absence of an 'antidote' there's really not much you can do other than keep an eye on her and keep her comfortable. I am of the opinion that an...

    neighbors chicken mauled

    When we care about our animals we all have to make hard decisions. Some people would be able to care for and treat birds whilst others do not have the time / money / resources / knowledge to do the same thing. We are a community who help and support each other, and I hope that everyone will...

    The Adventures of Featherdust Flock

    Some of us old (in both senses of the word) Derp fans are still around Nambroth! ;) Two years of Derp as house chicken - where does the time go? I'm glad to see that she is still Derping around as always - any chance of a picture? Warrior-princess or tumbleweed pose - it doesn't matter which...

    Pipped through shell but not the membrane

    Some eggs are tougher to break through than others. I regularly have to help my Marans chicks out of the shell as they get too tired trying to break through. If it's been 12 hours since they started pipping then I would risk trying to help them break the membrane before they get too tired and...

    Spots on egg yolks

    :welcome A couple of questions to maybe add information that will help us diagnose your problem: - Do you remember if the egg yolks looked different before they were fried, or did they look normal when raw and the spots only appeared as they cooked through? - Have you treated your hens for...

    I've been following the 'Fud lady' for a few years now, ever since I came across Derp's thread, which she has now transferred to the Featherdust flock page. The stories about Derp (especially the early ones when she was a chick) are just hilarious!

    I can't claim credit for them. They are original ATC sized portraits of my first 3 girls that were done for me by Jennifer Miller, known as Nambroth on BYC. She is a very talented artist (winner of the annual duck stamp competition a couple of years ago) and doesn't usually do small things like...

    Help! Flock started sneezing an coughing over night

    Coughing or sneezing on its own is not necessarily a sign of illness or infection. It could just be a reaction to the colder temperatures or dust in the atmosphere, if for example the birds have been staying indoors more due to the bad weather and have been scratching around in dusty conditions...

    :love:love:love Your girls are so loved and cared for! The photos are wonderful (especially the one of 'Derp, Warrior Princess'!) Losing Moa must be so hard for you, but you know that she had the best, happiest life that any chicken could have had, and that counts for an awful lot. She had...
