    Newbie from NW IN introduction! Chick with diarrhea ... ugh ...

    I'm a homeschooling gramma with a 9 yr old granddaughter. I thought chickens would be a good way to stave off any food crisis in the future AND be really educational for all of us. Needless to say, this has just been TOO MUCH FUN. We got them before Easter and today they are in their new coop...

    Wyndotte-only watery poo, paleness, wing droop -- cause?

    Good afternoon all, long-time listener, first-time caller :D We've had a flock of 6 chickens, all under 2.5 years old. Last fall, our smallest Wyndotte exhibited some hesitancy when walking, often holding it up for a pause before stepping, some stumbling. One wing kept drooping more. Was like...

    Hello, I have a Plymouth Black Rock who has been passing diarrhea-like droppings the past few days. She also has been drinking water a lot more in those few days, not sure if that is a symptom of the diarrhea or what is causing it. I note at the bottom that I saw other photos and read other...

    Diagel for chickens?

    One of my chickens has had explosive, completely liquid diarrhea for weeks, and I took her to the vet about 3 weeks ago. After weeks of waiting for blood/fecal results, they didn't turn up anything unusual. Probiotics and changing out her feed have done nothing. The vet left a message...

    Diarrhea?

    Okay ever since I got Shelby she’s been an unhealthy chicken, always wants to be left alone and is very flighty. I brought her inside today because of the frostbite on her comb and she had one solid poop and is now shooting out diarrhea! At this point I’m just not sure what to do with her. For...

    Open mouth breathing and stomach issues

    My gander Roxby is having issues again. He’s been off and on ill since March with some sort of recurrent neurological issue. As of August I seemed to have finally got a handle on whatever it was by treating him and the rest of the flock for coccidia and a gram positive bacteria “the vet wasn’t...

    Molting during a rainstorm

    Hello all, I live on the west coast, where we are getting hit with heavy rainfall and floods. My hen has been molting (growing her feathers back, currently) and lethargic. Yes, I figure she's tired from her body being in overdrive to grow those feathers back. We've been giving the chickens...

    Possibly sick youngster

    I have a female racing homer about 5 months old. We released her with our flock for their first 10 mile training release on Tuesday the 27th. She did not return with the flock, but instead came in 2 hours later, huffing and puffing. We decided to keep her in, and give her rest for 3 days. 2 days...
