    Mites spreading disease?

    Hi all :) I've had this slow spreading disease in my flock since I brought some girls home in September, I'll try to keep the story short. I've been keeping chickens a number of years now, never had a pest or disease problem... I also don't usually buy hens elsewhere, sorta have a hatching...

    Please Help, Sickly Chickens

    Today I picked up 6 pullets from a poultry supply store. It wasn’t ideal but I couldn’t find any local breeders this time of year. Upon inspecting them at home, I found poultry lice all over them and at least one of them was sneezing every minute or two. I’ve heard all chickens have a few lice...

    Viral white dots, stripes on Australorps?

    Hey all! Our Australorp has developed some odd white dots/stripes on her face and back. It almost looks like she got white paint on her (but there isn’t any paint around). Is this some sort of disease or just markings? Picture attached. Thanks!

    Bumpy/Weird Eggs & Poop below Vent

    Not sure what breed this girl is, but she’s almost 7 months old & we’ve raised her from a chick since we got her at the local farm store. When she began laying eggs in August, they were normal, hard shelled, and regular appearance. They started out smaller & gradually grew larger, as expected...

    Sick roosters

    I have a flock of 4 month old crevocuers, mixed with 3 month old ameraucanas. 2 weeks ago all of my flock appeared happy, and healthy. Then in one afternoon one of my roosters started swaying, falling over, and couldn't stand. I suspected snake bite because the symptoms literally appeared in...

    Quail with swollen eyes

    Today when I got home, I took a look at my quails and found out that one of them has swollen eyes. I immediately took her to the local vet but the problem is that he is known for misdiagnosing animals. He said it is an allergy and gave her some kind of injection. I hope he was right, can someone...

    Hi, I have a 3y.o female pekin called Cookie, she’s my pet duck and lives indoor. Almost a month ago she suddenly started limping, exactly on the very day that I added levamisole to her water for worming. Her ankle was a little swollen but not like joint swelling, just a spot. I took X-ray from...

    Strange Poop

    My chickens just went through one round of roundworm medication a week and a half ago.
