    Lethargic chick, Not sure what’s going on?

    I received 15 chicks on Friday this week and unfortunately one was dead on arrival, but the other 14 have been doing really well. The chick in question (a Salmon Faverolle) was actually the most boisterous when we finally got everyone set up in the brooder. Unfortunately, this morning I went to...

    Light Brahma pullet or cockerel?

    This is Pikachu. (my daughter named him/her). I thought it was a cock but now I'm almost thinking it's a pullet. The hackle feathers are really the only tell I have at this point and nobody in my family has any idea. We got Pikachu about a week after mothers day, so he/she is about 7 weeks old...

    Chick: 3weeks old, twisted beak, one eye, spins around, very few feathers, 1/2 size.

    My patty is 3 weeks old. 1. She has a twisted beak. 2. One Eye. 3. Her head is constantly spinning and so does she, so I’m pretty sure she has wry neck. 4. Her crop balloons up when she eats and when it’s full she chirps in a panic. So far: 1. I ground all of her food up in the coffee...

    We have a small chick - about 1-1.5 months old - and we believe she has fowl pox, a bump on her beak and one by her eye and the bumps keep growing. All the information we've found says there isn't much you can do. The bumps keep getting bigger and bigger and everyone says there's nothing you can...

    The heart break moments when I realize Vigi stopped eating and drinking

    I’ve raised days old chicks before, but this time, I had no choice but raising a single Speckled Sussex chick. I believe she was only a few days old. I know it’s a no-no. And I want to let the world know my own stupidity so if someone happens to read my post, they will remember how baby chicks...
