    Paralyzed chicken healed - Don't lose hope!

    Hi guys! Several months ago one of my white leghorn chicks got paralyzed and I'd like to tell her story. Maybe it will inspire somebody not to lose hope :) *** Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker. I have a country house where we keep chicken. We don't live there, and it's 10min on...

    Cyst??

    Honestly I have absolutely no idea what this is. I’ve had chickens now almost 10 yrs and have never seen this before. It is a huge mushy lump above her vent, about 1 to 1 1/2 inches above. If she was egg bound it has definitely broken but she is acting absolutely fine. Eating her fill, drinking...

    Another sick duck? Avian flu?

    Some of you may have read my recent post- we lost one of our khaki hens last week. She was egg bound, stopped eating, didn’t want to move around, tail bobbing. We did all the things were supposed to do (isolated her, warm soaks, calcium gluc, etc). She died after taking her to the vet and having...

    I need help...

    Hello BYC. I have a problem... I’ve had this hen who seemed a little “sick” for a while. She’s had a really pasty butt, and seemed to be getting picked on by the others. At first I wasn’t too worried about it, but today she started collapsing and sitting in an odd way. I think it might be egg...

    PLEASE HELP! Lethargic chicken

    Hello I’m sorry but please can anyone help me out? I have a chicken (I’ve been told she’s a red sex link and I don’t know her age) and today when I got home I let her out of the run and into my yard (which is mostly brick) and she went to go scratch at a corner with some dirt. I go inside for an...

    Egg Bound w/ Few or No Symptoms? Help!

    My 3 y/o ISA Brown hen, Buffy, has very much slowed down her laying (with some intermittent lengthy breaks). However, this past week, I noticed she'd go to the box like she had to lay without producing an egg. This made me nervous about internal laying, which I'd just lost my beloved BR to after...

    Help with our bantam — Nothing is working

    Hi there, Never posted on here before so forgive me if I'm not doing this correctly. We have a polish bantam hen that has been a consistently good layer (this is her first year laying), very energetic, very spunky, and our favorite chicken. A few days ago, we found her before night chores...

    I think my barred rock is dying, please help

    Hello! I desperately need help. I have a Barred Rock that I believe is laying internally, and I don’t know what to do. I discovered she wasn’t doing well when I picked her up and her abdomen was as hard as a softball. I tried to feel around in her vent, and I’m honestly not sure what I felt. The...

    Egg mites?? Egg bound hen??

    Hello all. Recently I posted about a leghorn I had who was exhibiting signs of being egg bound, and was laying soft shelled eggs. After an epsom salt bath and some calcium, she was laying eggs again and is back to her usual self. Another one of my chickens, a BR, is now seeming quite bound up...

    Hi there, This week my silkies were totally fine, and now they are both dead. One dropped down out of the blue yesterday, and this morning I found the other one dead. They have been so healthy, so idk what's going on. The only thing I did differently was added a little ACV to their water and...

    Egg stuck in Cloaca/Cloaca prolapse!? Please help!

    I am looking after my parents chickens while they are away for a few days and noticed that one of them seemed very lethargic and had a pale comb. When I inspected her she had a very dirty arse and very obviously has an egg bound in her Cloaca. I've given her a bath and cleaned around her vent as...

    Egg Bound Hen???? URGENT

    I found one of my hens (I have 7 total) just an hour ago walking funny with her tail down. My family have raised hens before and one of our hens from years ago had seemingly been egg bound but we didn't know how bad this was and she died from it. When I saw this hen acting like this I...

    Egg bound budgie with deflated egg needing emergency help

    Hi, I was hoping for some help or some advice as I cannot get any help from local vets, even avian vets are either far too far away to take her or never have appointments even for emergencies. I have a 7 year old budgie named Lemon. She had never laid eggs before but her sister had laid...

    Tumor or egg bound

    One of our silkies has had a hard lump in her abdomen since last night. We figured it was egg bound so we tried the suggested treatment to free her of it, but got nothing. We tried sticking a q-tip with natural lubricant, olive oil and still nothing. So my mom carefully stuck her finger in with...

    Emergency!!! Can’t tell if she is egg bound?? Warning: picture of chicken vent

    I found her acting weird in the side yard. Looks like she’s trying to lay an egg. I moved her to the coop initially, hoping she would lay there. But she moved all the way back to the side yard and back to the same spot you can see in the picture. She had energy this morning, but her general...

    Help, my hen is sick.

    If anyone has any advice, I would really appreciate it. Monday evening, we noticed one of our six 7-month-old Dorkings acting really strange. Isolating, moving in slow motion, not really foraging when free ranging. Before they went in for the night, I offered some wheat berries and she ate a...

    Soft shell membrane hanging from vent - Egg Bound

    I've had suspected internal layer--2.5 y/o Barred Rock--that has a vet appointment Friday. She'd been doing well, though I'd noticed some hard swelling around her vent/lower abdomen, and that she spends time in the nesting box as if she's laying (but no egg). This all is on the tail of weird...

    Egg Bound hen

    Crowe my black copper sex-link is egg bound, I felt her abdomen and I felt an egg in there. I didn’t massage it in case it broke and she has access to calcium. I soaked her and put her on a towel in a cage in the dark (not total) so that she’ll hopefully pass the egg. I know that if she doesn’t...
