    dealing with chicken deaths

    Today around 7:30 I came outside and realized that Moosie, my favorite partridge cochin wad eaten by a hawk. None of her body parts were left besides her blood. It seems like a hawk got into the coop since there was blood on the door and on the grass. I feel as if her death is my fault since I...

    Almost exactly two months ago I lost one of my Olive Eggers to a mystery illness or ailment. At first I thought it was Merek's but it turned out not to be, thank goodness. A friend of a friend who is a veterinarian looked at videos and pictures of her and thought it was egg peritonitis. Fast...

    *kind of graphic* What killed this Hen?

    My beautiful Partridge Cochin has been battling the heat. I've done everything I can, I've read articles and done it all. At first I wasn't surprised when I found her collapsed in the chicken coop. Then I got closer. My coop door is left open and so is the window straight back. The window has...

    Chicken Death (educational purposes)

    My chicken was perfectly healthy. Hawthorne(the chicken) died last night. I can only conclude it was an accident. My dogs love to chase the chickens. But this day, this time, they got a little to close. I inspected the body and it shows that while being chased the dog stepped on the chickens...

    Help! Safe to butcher a frozen bird?

    We were away for the holidays and one of our hens died under our neighbors watch. He put her in our freezer thinking we would prefer not to waste the meat, which is true. We figured we would process her when we returned. So we have an entire bird, feathers and all, that has been in the freezer...

    My favorite BC Miran was murdered yesterday. She was about 4 months old I assumed it was a predator but after looking at it it doesn't look like anything ate much of her maybe just the breast. She was literally just ripped apart from her stomach and her body was left intact. Feathers everywhere...

    Ever day or two a chicken just drops dead

    I have been doing chickens for a couple years. I have always had healthy chickens. This year Fleas in the chicken coop are horrible. The hot Texas heat does not help. I have put down nematodes and those are helping a lot. All of the sudden the chicken will be out in the yard and just fall down...
