    Lethargic Chick - Please Help!

    I got a couple chicks from someone (French Wheaten Marans) at first they did seem kind of sickly, but two of them came out of it relatively fast. My third chick is very lethargic, I read online that chicks need 1-2 ounces of food and twice that for water every day, but she’s barely eating and...

    Sick 4mo hen

    Any thoughts on how I should proceed with my four-month-old Easter Egger? We're rather worried as she has been listless, separate from the other four hens, and uninterested in food. Today she mostly stayed seated on the coop floor by herself. She can walk, but very slowly, with her head hanging...

    Hen not laying eggs but in the box all day and night

    I have a hen who hasn’t laid an egg in the past three days but has been hanging out in the box all day and night. It has been in the 90s here so at first I thought the heat was keeping her from laying. Now I’m concerned that she isn’t drinking and is dehydrated. She’s acting a little lethargic...

    Bantam Barred Rock - lethargic, no egg, pale face

    My little Barred Rock, Betty, was acting strange Sunday afternoon. She was walking but a little wobbly and I noticed her neck tucked down, she was a little puffed up, and her comb, wattles, & face were very pale. So I brought her inside and put her in a pet carrier with food and water which she...

    IS THIS CURABLE???

    I am still kind of new to the chicken world. My first and my little baby girl Nugget (profile picture) has not pooped in awhile. Lost a lot of weight, lethargic, and it keeps getting worse as the weeks go on. I’ve kept her separate from the other chickens in my flock for two days now and when I...

    I have 6 chickens that have always been in perfect health. I raised 5 of the chickens myself and 1 I got after she was a year old. Out of the 5 babies (they’re actually about 5 months old now) one has grown the fastest. She is a BEAST. She’s always been 3x as big as the others. She has always...

    Silkie bantam with ascites?

    We have 6, 11 week old silkies. One of them (Lizzie) last night was not pecking/scratching. She was standing still making a cooing sound. It was close to " bedtime" so I didn't think anything of it... But this morning she was still acting the same (worse even). Last night I had looked up a few...

    Are my chicks dying of coccidiosis, salmonella, or something else?

    Hey there, I'm wondering if anyone can help with some info? I had 8 chickens yesterday. Now sadly I have 4. Another might also die soon. The first one died last night, the next 3 today. I purchased them about 5 days ago and I think they were under 1 week old. So they'd be max 2 weeks now. I...

    Lethargic baby chicken can't keep up with her mom

    For context, we have free roam chickens (we are far away from any roads, big property, but they stick around cause we feed em). One of our newer hatches (she's about 2 weeks old) isn't doing too well. We don't know the breed, but she keeps nodding off while walking, and then waking up to see...

    California white broody or something more serious?

    My California white hen is about 1 year old as of this spring. She was laying eggs really good last fall but then winter came and they all slowed production way down. I never do anything to make them lay over winter. I like to give them a break for all their hard work. Now that it’s peak egg...
