    Buff Orpington Broken Leg

    My one-year-old buff orpington broke her leg just above the hock joint. She got it caught in some fencing in our yard (we believe). It was very sad, but we decided to try and save her versus the alternative. Both were difficult decisions if I'm being honest. Luckily we have an avian vet within...

    On of our hens (hatched this spring, out by a broody hen), was acting very odd last week. We were worried that she may be egg bound as she wasn't moving. Unfortunately, we observed her odd behavior as we were leaving for the airport for the week. We came back, nervously afraid to find a very...
