    Scabs on comb and bold spots on head. How to stop pecking?

    Hi chicken friends, my hen showed bold spots on the back of her head for a few weeks now. I know the other hen is pecking her on the head occasionally and thought that the bold spots came from that.

    Severely injured vent- recovery possible?

    Hello! My sweetest chicken, a docile Houdan, was attacked (“defeathered”?) by some of her flock mates 10 days ago. Her butt was brutally injured- all feathers gone and vent severely pecked. She didn’t poop for about 5-6 days… a huge scab finally came off and she’s able to poop - sort of, her...

    Hi, I have a 22 week old black cooper maran hen who seems to have injured her leg. It is swollen and I cannot tell if it is also slightly crooked/ broken or just the swelling.

    Something is chewing on my chickens neck...

    EDIT: I updated the info and added photos down the thread. My husband is now thinking something is getting her out in the yard, but really we are completely lost and have zero ideas. My pet chicken has a very deep hole in her neck, possibly another wound near there as well. It looks really bad...

    Chicken leg injury

    We have a backyard chicken who is 5- she recently developed a leg injury we can’t diagnose. The only symptom is that she won’t walk, she limps when walking and doesn’t want to get up. Her leg is not warm, tender to the touch or enlarged. During and briefly after her nightly epsom salt bath...
