    Choking Hen! Help!

    Hi all, I just had a massive scare. My 1.5 year old Barred Plymouth Rock hen, Tilly, just started choking. I was bringing them in from their pen and I left her in the coop to go bring in two of her sisters. I come back and she has her beak wide open, trying to gasp. I pick her up and stick my...

    rooster or hen?

    This is my white leghorn. I got around the end of may or early June. I know that leghorn hens are supposed to get a larger comb but I get paranoid. The hen in the last picture just started laying eggs a few days ago so I’m not too worried about her not laying yet because half of my hens don’t...

    Differences in egg colors?

    I've had a 22 week old Sapphire Gem laying for a little over a week now. Out of 10 days, I've gotten 8 eggs. I know the breed is supposed to be an eggcellent layer, so I wasn't thinking too much about it, but I'm getting two different shades of brown. Nothing crazy, but enough to be able to tell...

    Hi, 1st ever post ^_^ does anyone have any abnormally large duck hens? I'll have to get some pics for you guys, but I have a muscovy duck that's the same size as my drake - for a while she's was larger than him! I was wondering how common this is?

    Injured Hen Won't Eat

    Long story short, last week a raccoon killed my flock of bantams. Two survivors were injured. The one I'm calling Glory for right now had her head chomped on. Her whole face was a grotesque, mauled mass of blood and meat. Her beak was off center and her tongue hung out. I've done everything I...

    How to Prevent/Stop Comb Frostbite and Comb Pecking?

    I'm not sure which is happening to three of my chickens, so I want to solve both problems at once. Here's the situation behind this: Due to a recurring problem of high humidity inside the isolated, non-heated coop (hydrometer shows 72-78% - the walls and windows are covered in frost), I...
