    Injury above leg - 5 week old chick

    I'd really appreciate some input on how to deal with this injury to my golden laced wyandote. There is no apparent internal damage but the skin is lacerated just above the right leg - which is a tough spot because every time she moves it seems to keep the wound open. These pictures are day 3. No...

    HELP! One legged quail... Cull?

    I got a one legged quail today... about 5-6 weeks maybe? He’s not able to stand on one foot. The other foot is almost twisted completely backwards, too. He just scoots/crawls, and it’s incredibly difficult for him to get around. I’m not sure if this is a birth deformity or an injury. This makes...

    Strange behavior following splayed foot injury. What should I do?

    I bought three chicks a little over three weeks ago. They've been great together until my Welsummer got splayed foot after slipping in a card board box because I didn't put any wood shavings for traction (rookie mistake). After much reading, I made several hobbles for her (I think the rubber...

    Marking on back of ducklings?

    Hi, we got baby ducklings from tractor supply on Thursday, and it’s Monday now. I assume they are about a week old and maybe less. We noticed there was a red marking on the back of both of them near their tail and they were pecking/itching it. Do all ducks have this? Should we be worried? Thanks
