    Very young baby with badly infected foot! Help!

    Brought home from the feed store today. The entire foot is swollen and purplish. Skin is split between toes, I think from being stretched so tight. There is also a small split in the bottom of her foot from the pressure, got a lot of clear yellow fluid out of that, but it is not bumblefoot. A...

    Treatment for swollen head due to injury and E. coli infection

    Hi, I have a chicken with a head injury from another chicken pecking it. This morning she has a very swollen head, the wound is infected, most likely from E. coli introduced in the cut. I’m thinking about giving antibiotics immediately. Sulfa? It needs to be something I can dissolve in water...

    Bump of my hen’s face

    Hello BYC community! I have noticed the last few days a few bumps on my Plymouth Rock hen’s face - just above her nostril. It’s a bit larger on one side than the other but it is on both sides of the face. It’s a bit soft and looks kind of like a scab but I’m wondering if it may be a respiratory...

    Duck Amoxicillin dose?

    How much of this should I give to a duck and how often? And how should I give it to her. I’ve been treating a duck’s wounds for over a month, I’ve taken it to the vet twice. The most recent time I asked them to check the wounds and see how they looked and if I should give it any antibiotics. It...

    Hen with a swollen eye (with photo)

    Hello all, My hen has a swollen eyelid. I didn’t see anything stuck in her eye and I’m wondering if anybody knows what could be the cause —I’m hoping it is not related to a respiratory infection. She’s been healthy and is about four years old. She is acting normally, the only change in her is...

    Deformed wing

    Hello About 24 hours ago we hatched 7 chicks. Most were fine but one has a deformed wing. Normally I would just wait and see how it did. I already know some just die even when they look normal. I'm worried this time because it looks swollen. But I don't know if this is due to the deformity or...

    Bumble foot.

    Hi my Rouen female has bumble foot. I worked on her foot last night, when I was done I put copaiba and coconut oil on the wound and wrapped it. This is what it looks like this morning. Does it look like I got all the infection? Do I need to work on her some more? Thank you

    My Rooster has a fat lip :-(

    Earlier yesterday, I was out with my chickens and it looked like my rooster had a piece of debris on his eye. I figured I’d check him out later when he goes in to roost for the night. As my chickens were filing in, I noticed his face looked a little strange. They went up to roost, that’s when...

    Baby Seabright not thriving

    I’ve had this baby about two weeks. He was probably a week old when I got him. A few days later one of his eyes stuck shut. I used warm water and a q-tip to gently help it open. It still doesn’t look right. Today I noticed a small sore by its beak which looked like a piece of its food. When I...

    I believe my hen has a respiratory illness

    I have an older hen (10 yrs) and for the past few weeks she has been exhibiting signs of what I would think is a mild respiratory illness or sinus infection (I say mild because she's doing great apart from her symptoms and is very alert and active for her age). Her symptoms include: occasional...

    Tapeworm

    Hi. My chicken has been recently been treated for tapeworm, maybe a month ago, and today he had tape segments in his poop again. I wormed him using worm out gel 50ml and that worked. I was wondering if I can use it again in less than the three months treatment period safely? He is about 3 months...

    Injured Feet - Bandages? Leg Mites? Ideas?

    Hi all, Our poor 1 year old GLD just bounced back from a pretty severe case of tandem bumblefoot (bottom of both feet. After surgery and with lots of R&R she bounced back beautifully. Of course, upon being back outside for her first few weeks she ended up scraping the tops of both feet pretty...
