    Eggbound hen? Please help!

    Hi BYC, After researching the symptoms my bantam chicken had, I think she might be eggbound. For a couple of days she’s been waddling around, dragging her tail and she can’t stand up correctly. She uses her wings to stabilize her but she can’t balance. She waddles around for a bit but then stops...

    Rooster Comb Injury

    It started with a little frostbite. We had a bad rain and wind storm on a 60 degree day, and that turned into a 15 degree night. My rooster, Jamie, suffered a bit of frostbite on the tips of his comb. Not a huge deal. Fast forward a week later and the center tip of his comb is bloody and just...

    Limping chicken

    Just notice one of my buff orpington hens limping. I went to go check her out and she doesn't have as much energy as normal. I also did not see any cuts or bruises on her feet or leg. What could be wrong? She seemed fine this morning. I thought chickens tried to hide theor injuries and sicknesses?

    I want some opinions on this, I believe one of my roosters, a young Jersey Giant/RIR cross killed one of my hens. This morning when I went to do chores I found her in the coop, neck and head all bloody and she was stiff, so I think it happened last night before I turned their light off. Everyone...

    Eye injury

    Hello there! This is my hen, Reginda. I found her by the highway some months ago. Here in the islands we have a pretty big population of feral chickens, but when I saw her I knew she was not a feral hen. She was sleeping on a fence at around 3 feet from the cars. I knew something wasn’t fine...

    My 3 year old Muscovian hen duck was attacked by an otter a little over two months ago and it either badly sprained or broke her neck.
