    Other hens hanging out with broody hen and chicks

    possible friend for disabled hen

    I have a hen that is a few years old - she had encephalopathy when young and I somehow managed to keep her going. I had her in the house in a cage for a year - now she is outside in a coop all by herself. I can't put her in with the 3 other girls because she still has some issues and they will...

    Fun things to do..

    This is random... Do any of you do "fun things" with your ducks? Take them anywhere with you? Walk them? Take them to places away from home? What can you do with them? What should you NOT do with them? I only have 4 ducks right now.. Was just thinking about this. Haha! :) I just want to show...

    My ducks (one in particular) have been having a major attitude towards the rescued duck. They are all drakes. Is there anything I can do to change this?

    Friends for my disabled hen- need advice

    Hello, Peeps! Need an opinion on providing companionship for my mobility-challenged chicken. Cordelia is a Black Copper Maran, can walk and even run if she's really motivated, but with difficulty and doesn't do it very often, or quickly. She doesn't roost. The vet says there is nothing we can...

    Returning to BYC

    I was on here about 10 years ago. Got busy with living in the rat race. I am taking a friend's chickens in a sort of emergency situation. It makes me happy to be of help. I am excited to be returning to tending some hens.
