    Bleeding feathers- at my wits end

    I have a chicken who every week or so has a tail feather broken and then starts bleeding. This has been going on for 5 months or so. I’ve resorted to pulling them. But as soon as they start growing back they break and bleed. I think she’s doing it herself when preening and then her friends go...

    I have a Russian Orloff Rooster that is almost 3 years old. I have had him since he was 3 days old. Today I went in the stall and he is extremely wobbly and having trouble even walking. He is usually very active and has always been my most dominant rooster. A few weeks ago he had some dried...

    Injury in the corner of comb — please help!

    My beloved chicken, Nuggie, has a cut right between her head and her comb. It’s not bleeding anymore but has made a little sticky mess on her. She doesn’t seem to act any differently or even care! I suspect it to be from a rooster, as there are no other areas where it could have happened. No one...

    Injured (?) Duck Mystery

    Yesterday morning, when we let the ducks out into the yard, my husband noticed blood splattered on the sides of two of our ducks. They had no visible injuries, but we found additional blood splatter in their bedding, near where the girls drop their eggs, and on the wall above. We carefully...

    Pekin Egg bleeding?

    This is my first time incubating eggs. These are pekin ducklings. I’ve done a ton or research. It’s day 29 and these babies have pipped last night on day 28. On one of the eggs I’ve noticed a red clot of blood, is this normal? It is not bleeding, I just see the spot and it’s making me nervous...

    Sudden aggression?

    I have four chickens living like queens in a big shed (their outdoor area isn’t ready yet). They have multiple waterers and feeders and normally seem to be happy, besides some pecking from our top girl Gwen who’s a few years older than the other three. The order was Gwen, Chichi, Inari, &...

    Blood in poop, possible Cocci?

    Hello! I've noticed a bit of red / pink in in the general poop in the coop. I know it is normal for birds to have some red in their poop, I've seen it before. Just wanted to make sure this isn't anything I should be worried about. The potential bird(s) affected have already been in quarantine...

    Serious Dog Attack (GRAPHIC PICTURES)

    While I was at work a neighbor's kids trespassed on the land and their dog got into the chicken pen. My landlord was able to scare the mutt away before any of them were killed. There were a lot of feathers. The police were called (rightfully so: trespassing, neglect of the leash law, possible...

    Chick With An Ingrowth??

    I got a couple of new chicks this month: 2 faverolles and 5 silkies. They're all 2 weeks old (hatched Nov 1st). While doing my daily check-up I got a tiny drop of chicken blood on my hand. Upon closer inspection I noticed...something on the smaller faverolle's foot. Is this some sort of ingrown...

    Pin/Blood Feather Fell Out?

    Hi everyone. We had just taken our duck out of his bath and he flapped his wings a bit, and this developing feather fell to the ground. There was blood at the tip of it, but we can’t find where it came from on his body, since he doesn’t seem to be bleeding from wherever it fell out. There was...

    Bloody Faced Babies!

    Gosh darn it I struck oil...erm, blood.

    Cut my duck’s nails today. Struck blood on the only two I cut. Is there a better way to do this that this doesn’t happen?

    I have been seeing some red in my chicken's poop for a few days now, and have thought nothing of it because they have been enjoying a summer treat of watermelon. This time it had been a few days and I was still seeing small bubbles of red in my chicken's poop. Not often, but not too...
