    She looks horrible

    I have one hen that is looking really horrible. This is my first time raising chickens. They were given to me last year around this time. They all layed eggs well at the time. Then when spring hit, they slowed to about 1 to 2 eggs a day. Now, I haven't gotten an egg in 3 days. All of them look...

    No Eggs

    I've got no eggs for 4-5 months maybe more, I stopped counting. My hens are in a open pen that is 40 by 40 ft. The hen house is 10 by 10. I give them 2 cups alfalfa pellets, chicken feed with sunflower seeds in it, and 20% protein chick starter. I have given them everything. I even ferment their...

    Speedy girl is sick!

    A few days ago, I noticed my Speedy girl laying in the middle of the run, she still tried to run from me when I tried to pick her up but I was able to get her . . . twice . . . which is not normal for her at all. I was petting her and she spit up some water that she had just sipped but nothing...

    My flock is 17 weeks and 1 day and with the exception of my rooster that was gifted to me that’s for sure over a year. I have 2 rhode island reds, 2 light brahmas, and two prairie bluebell easter eggers. I have seen absolutely none of the girls squat or lay eggs but for the last few days I’ve...

    Hen not laying but appears ok

    Hi all, Recently joined to ask for some advice really. I have an Oxfordshire brown hen, she’s about 2.5 years old, she is a good layer for the most part, except a few times a year she would get lethargic and soft lay and then immediately bounce back. She was having one of these episodes but it...

    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...

    Angry Chicken, no eggs, hoarse voice

    Hi there - Our easter egger, Pearl, is a bit off of her normal these days. She is about 14 months old, had been regularly laying light green eggs. We brought 4 new chicks into the flock. They were separated from our 2 older hens but Pearl knows about them because she can see them across the...

    California Whites Not Laying

    I have 3 California White chickens that I bought as chicks last year on May 14th. (I initially bought 4 and lost one in the late fall after a long battle with a prolapsed vent.) It is now almost year later and I still have no white eggs. I chalked lack of laying last year up to the fact that...

I have been giving them oyster shells, grit, protein in the form of meal worms. They have a clean coop, they have clean water, they are getting plenty of nutrients. None of them...

    Ancona Chicken 31 wks old, has never laid but broods and sings

    Hello! My Ancona girl, Tiny, has never laid. She’s 31 weeks old and all of her sisters lay. She gets in the box almost daily, lays there for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, then sings the egg laying song. We live in the PNW so days are short, rainy, and fairly dark. Is she not laying...

    No Eggs+2 New Girls--Is This Normal?

    Hi Everyone! Hope you're all doing well. Our tiny flock (5 at the time) mostly stopped laying around Halloween. We had one hen who was still laying well, but everyone else pretty much stopped. We had a bit of a "perfect storm" of factors, so I wasn't surprised: 1. No supplemental lighting. We...

    Egg Production is Down

    Earlier this year, I introduced 4 new chicks to my flock bringing the total to 10. One of the chicks escaped the first week. Once they were old enough I incorporated them all together in the same run. I almost immediately saw the number of eggs drop from 5-6 a day to 4 consistently. Then one of...

    Do these girls look healthy - 8 months old and still no eggs.

    Hi everyone. I've been wondering about my 3 pekin bantam girls for some time. I got them as day old chicks at the end of March, so they are now 8 months old. When googling around, it seems you can expect pekins to start laying between 6 and 8 months of age. They're obviously now at the later end...
