    Help! Chicken can’t get up/walk 😞

    Last night I discovered my Easter Egg hen (approximately 6 months old) on the floor of the coop lying on her side. My rooster was standing beside her. When I came into the coop she didn’t get up - just moved her head to look at me - I thought this was odd so I went over to check on her and she...

    My duck can’t walk

    My duck can’t walk. I’ve had this problem in the past with this duck, which was fixed With Niacin. But it’s not seeming to work. Unfortunately I think we’ll have to put her down, I don’t want to but I think she’s in pain. We’re gonna take her to the vet to see what they can do, but if they can’t...

    Hen not walking after illness

    About two weeks ago, one of my rescue girls (nearly 3 yrs old) started showing signs of lethargy. She did not have sour crop nor was she eggbound so didn't really know what the problem was. Couple of days later, I looked her over for lice/mites but couldn't see anything. She was eating, but not...

    I brought home 4 silkie chicks on Friday. Aside from the typical adjustment phase, all were active, eating, drinking, and thriving. This morning (Monday) I went to the brooder to see one of the chicks on its side. I assumed it had been knocked over or fell off the stuffed animal in the brooder...

    My black silkie chicken was born this morning and isn't looking great. It can't walk and it just kind of hops and flaps around. I checked and it doesn't have splayed leg, crooked toes or perosis. It also doesn't really hold it's head up, he has held it up but mostly it's head is just facing...

    Emergency! RIR Age 3 yrs Hard lump on chest, and losing weight.

    My Rhode Island Red, Chocobo, has developed a lump on her chest. It is soft on the bottom but hard at the top. She went into molt a week ago, since then she has been exhausted and not eating. I thought it was a combination of the molt and the heat, and treated her for such. Vitamins, protein...

    Week old chick, leg issues

    So, our "problem nugget" as the kids call her had very weak legs on hatch, there was an immediate notice about how she got around opposed to other chicks we've hatched. She wouldn't use anything below her hocks and hobbled around everywhere. She was second to hatch, first to pip. She was pipped...

    Not quite spraddle leg but chick can't stand

    This chick is about 36 hours old and from the beginning has never stood up straight. I don't think it is exactly straddle leg as the legs don't splay out to the sides he just won't stand. He pipped on day 22 and was shrink wrapped so had to be helped out, never had a slippery surface to walk on...
