    can I give my chicken human amoxicillin?

    My buff Orpington is 7 months old, she became sick a few days ago. One of her eyes was swollen and had bubbles in it. But we have started treating her with Neosporin and saline twice a day. But now it seems like she is unable to breathe very well. She raises her head and takes a long breathe...

    Buff orpington hen, 8mo, needs a good home in the Triangle, NC area

    After 3 years of no issues, we were hit with a predator recently (probably a raccoon) and have been left with a sole hen after having 5. It's been a hard week. She's about 8 months old, has been a great layer so far, and is incredibly sweet with humans, other chickens, and dogs. We're not...

    Therapy Birb has Swollen Closed Eye

    My dad told me this morning that the dogs had gotten one of Cin's chickens, but he managed to save it just in time. I went looking for it to make sure it was okay (and it seems fine, just smells like dog). But then I happened upon my friend here who has a swollen closed eye and some crusty...

    Free Egg Laying Chicks

    I Do Not Want To Do This... but it cannot be helped. I need to give away my four 8-month old Buff Orpingtons. They are VERY friendly, will sit in your lap for as long as you want to pet them, come running when they see you, lay one egg every day, PERFECT pets for children to learn about...

    Bullying following death in the flock

    A few weeks ago, one of my two Buff Orpingtons was taken by a hawk. Immediately thereafter, my Ancona rooster began bullying the remaining BO, with other hens often joining in. Here is a video from a camera in my coop: Any ideas about what to do?

    My hen is scared of my other hen. The main issue is I don't think she's eating.

    (I'm new so sorry if this is in the wrong place) I realized my Silkie is actually very small compared to my other Silkies. I also realized today that she's actually scared of my Buff Orphington Bantam so that's why she hides in a corner/behind the dog house all day. I'm scared she doesn't eat...

    Regrowing feathers?

    So I have this hen, shes a 4 year old buff orpington, that has been almost bald of feathers for more than a year. Two years ago I had a couple of aggressive roosters, and only 7 hens, which is when the feather loss started. I bought the girls "jackets", to protect from the roosters, but most of...

    Buff Orpington

    Today I was out with my hens and noticed our 3 year old buff Orpington hens legs and feet were very red. It’s only snowed once here so far this winter and melted mostly later that day. There’s no snow currently. Oh and there’s bubbly scale on the back of her leg if you look at the last photo I...

    Chicken with black dots around eyes

    Hi there. I really hope someone can help me. My chicken has these black dots around her eyes and some blood around her neck also (I’ll insert a picture). She is the head of the pecking order so it would be weird, but I guess possible for her to be attacked. She is acting normal and eating and...

    Anybody in Canada Ontario or just Canada?

    Hello I am moving in about a month or two to a new town (Iroquois Falls, Ontario) where I'm finally able to own chickens. I'm hoping to find someone for this coming spring to be able to sell and ship me 3 - 4 buff Orpington hens. I cannot legally own roosters here, only hens. I have never owned...

    What Is Going On With My Hen??

    **Edited the chaos of the repeating post** So I got a 12 week old Buff Orphington pullet back in April. It only took her a couple weeks to start laying and quickly became the head hen of the flock. About a month ago, we went broody. But it started while my husband a I were away on vacation for...

    What breed is my so called "Buff Orpington"?

    I bought a Buff Orphington a few months ago, but I am starting to notice some changes. The regular Buff Orphington lays brown eggs, but mine lays white eggs. They are totally white eggs, not even a tint of brown. I have also noticed that her feathers are whitish. I am wondering if my "Buff...

    Broody or not?

    Hello there everyone. This is the first time I've actually had to ask for help on this website but I'm just so confused. We have a Buff Orphington (Buffy) who recently started to be aggressive to us. As in shrieking and puffing up her feathers and even pecking us sometimes. I looked into it and...
