    Injured Pekin feet/toes

    I noticed that my Pekin duck has been walking a bit funky, but I put that off thinking it was because of all the mud from there being so much rain recently and she’s always had issues with one of her legs being turned slightly inward. But today I noticed her sitting away from the others and when...

    CHicken Attacked by wild animal!! Need help!!

    My rooster was attacked last night and it injured his head really badly. He has been acting sorta weak, not like himself and is moving slower. He also hasn’t been crowing which he does a lot.

    Injured Chicken

    My 4wk old chick was attacked by my dog 3 days ago. We think that she's in shock, but she has only been sleeping and drinking for 3 days. She is motionless, and only drinks a little bit of water a few times a day. We don't think that she has internal injuries, but she seems like she's dying.
