    Poop and/or Umbilical Cord On Chick’s Butt

    I applied Vaseline around the vent, although I’m curious about how that works since it seems rather sticky...wouldn't that mean poop and shavings are more likely to stick?

    Poop and/or Umbilical Cord On Chick’s Butt

    I was able to remove all clumps with the soaking and wiping with a Q-tip. Does it look clear? Should I expect more Pasty Butt for this chick?

    Poop and/or Umbilical Cord On Chick’s Butt

    Ok, so this morning I woke up and I think it is feces and not the cord, or at least not anymore. Whenever the chick tries to poop, nothing comes out and it starts chirping really loud and rapidly, like it’s scared. Now should I do something? I’m very worried about this chick, and it’s vent only...

    Poop and/or Umbilical Cord On Chick’s Butt

    I just got 6 Day-Old chicks yesterday and they have all been healthy-looking and acting normally, but this afternoon I noticed one of my Spitzhauben chicks had some poop on its butt, so I wiped off the poop but something else is still on it and not all the poop could come off, so I’m confused if...

    Gender polish chicks

    I’ve raised Polish and I learned how to fairly-accurately sex them by their “Afro” as babies. Females will have wide, large, round ‘balls’ of fluff while males have small, narrow, short fluff on their head. Therefore, I’d say #2 is likely female, and #3 is likely male. #1 is almost between, so...

    Hey! Am I crazy for disagreeing?

    Commercial settings find ways like this to increase profit in anyway they can. No matter the breed, large-scale commercial breeders or companies will find ways to cut back on costs and increase profit, like preventing loss of birds or injury by removing beaks like this. As many of us here know...

    Chick genders!

    As others have said, they are too young to be sure, but by the first one's stance and my experience with polish, I'd say your Dominique--not Wyandotte--could be a cockerel along with the Golden Laced Polish. I say cockerel for the Wyandotte because by the picture it looks more confident and...

    Help

    More information is needed, like her age, breed, diet, and free-range environment (if they are ever free ranged). She might be sick or had an injury, so has anything happened to her recently to possibly injure her? Any stressful events or drastic changes in weather?

    Rooster Won't Roost In Coop At Night

    I do have a spare coop that is open to him, and I've put him in there a few times at night but he always ends up outside unless I'm there to force or help him into the coop. He used to go in the coop every night by himself, but now he goes straight for the top of the coop. I don't want to have...

    Rooster Won't Roost In Coop At Night

    My bantam South Blue D'Anver rooster has been sleeping on top of the coop and not roosting at night since I got him this summer, and it wasn't a huge problem since the weather had been nice this summer, but now it's becoming winter and it snows and freezes at night. Last year one of my Polish...

    What is wrong with her?

    My Easter Egger, Robin, has been showing signs of sickness yesterday and today. She seems slower than usual and just not herself, and when I picked her up to check for mites and lice, she ended up throwing up yellow liquid. I have her inside my house because I’m hoping it’s just heat exhaustion...

    Will broody give up chicks after weekend?

    Compared to my other Buff Orpington who has her cushion pecked to death, she really is good looking.

    Will broody give up chicks after weekend?

    I am going to be showing my broody mama that currently has 3 chicks in 2-3 weeks and I’m worried that they’re too young to go from broody-raised to on their own. Mama would be gone for 3-5 days and I’m wondering if her broodiness would be broken by the time she got back, or if the chicks would...

    (Repost) Mystery Bump On Face

    Yes she’s acting like an average, normal chicken and doesn’t seem to have any personality changes. I was thinking it was some type of cyst, and it’s been there for less than a month, because I’m not sure of the exact time since I hadn’t really noticed it before.

    (Repost) Mystery Bump On Face

    (Nobody replied to the original post, so this is a repost) My Black Copper Maran, Cocoa, apparently has a large bump on her face that is hard in the center but can be ‘jiggled’ around. It doesn’t seem to be affecting her eye or eyesight. It’s on the left side of her face, and the right side is...

    My first broody lockdown questions

    Well the hatching happened sometime last night or early this morning, and everything seemed to be well when I got there. 3 eggs hatched, and one wasn’t fertile, or at least was a dud. I’ve had the flock free ranging all day and supervising when they needed to lay eggs. Everything’s going great...

    Can I bring broody and chicks on grass already?

    She’s in the main coop so she had a bit of room within the coop to bring them out and walk around, but it’s a raised coop so there’s a ladder and so they probably won’t be able to get out anytime soon, without getting hurt.
