    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...

    Sick or Hurt Hen

    My Isa is my baby. It was a shock to go outside today and find her unable to stand, last night at about 11pm she was perfectly fine. I found no injuries, but she sometimes squeezes her eyes shut like she's in pain. She keeps her legs tucked underneath of her. If I make her stand normally, she...

    Hen with dead looking wattle?

    I have this hen that I received about a month and a half ago. Today I noticed one of her wattles looks sort of bad. Maybe bruised? I did introduce her to the flock a few days ago, but it doesn't seem fresh. Never seen this before, not even on the other hens that were introduced. Thoughts?

    I just lost one of my babies to sour crop so I really want to make sure I take care of this one! She is limping, not putting weight on her left foot. It is a bit swollen though there is no clear wound. I'm assuming this is bumble foot? I soaked her foot for 15 mns in epsom salts and then...
