    Hi all, I have a flock of around 40 chicks. Half of them are 8 weeks old and the other half 5 weeks old.

    Lethargic hen, lays down a lot; heat or something else?

    This is my first post here, so apologies if I'm doing anything incorrectly. One of my hens (an ISA brown) that is usually very peppy and eager to scratch and eat has recently become lethargic and slow to move. She'll run to me and will eat treats if given, but besides that I have barely seen...

    Egg Bound or Constipated quail?

    can a chicken have sour crop and canker at the same time?

    I noticed one of our hens not eating and lethargic after going through a broody spell. I kept an eye on her and noticed that she would come running when I gave the other girls a treat, but she would just look at the food and would pick at the food but not pick it up. A chicken farmer in my...

    SOS! Hen Suddenly Lethargic

    This morning my normally bossy, loudmouthed, super hungry, energetic hen (who happens to be the boss of the flock) was standing very still with pale combs and wattles. She wasn't interested in me coming out which was a red flag, nor was she responsive to treats--another HUGE red flag. Just last...
