    Hi! This little guy hatched from under its mother one hour earlier. It seemed that the hen was pecking the egg to help it come out and we were watching as it came out. However, when it did, it had a little yellow sack attached which the hen started devouring it, and it seemed that it kinda...

    Impacted Crop, Marek's Disease, Predator Attack or Something Else Entirely?

    I am concerned about bumps these chicks have on their wings and a large lump they each have on the same sides of their neck/shoulder. One of them has a bottom that looks very red as well. I have only had them in my care for a couple of hours. I am unsure how sick they maybe or if I can nurse...

    Soft lump on chick's throat, full of bubbles?

    We have a ten day old male chick with a lump on his throat. We thought it was his crop to start with, but now it is soft and squishy and kind of bothers him when you touch it. I've attached the best photo I could get. The skin over it has no feathers or fluff and is really thin, and I can see...

    Chick with tucked neck?

    I’ve noticed one of my chicks holds her neck tucked in slightly further than the other chicks. It doesn’t seem to affect eating drinking or her normal life, but I am wondering if it might just be a hatch defect or so thing she’ll grow out of. Here’s a picture:

    Lethargic duckling with neck contracted against body

    I have an approximately 6 week old pekin duckling. She was perfectly fine yesterday. Today her neck is contracted against her body and she seems pretty lethargic.

    Baby Trapped In Mother's Feathers

    One of our Silkies, Emperor, recently had four babies, and due to the cold right now where we live, we decided to keep them inside. This morning when I checked on them, one of our babies had gotten completely stuck in their mother's feathers. It took quite a while to get them unstuck. Last time...

    I live in Panama. I started to have chicken for eggs and for eating. Now, since almost one year, I became (almost) vegan so my chicken are my pets now. I refuse to give them to anyone because here they will make a soup out of them. I want them to live a long happy life. I think they deserve it...
