    Injured Hen Won't Eat

    Long story short, last week a raccoon killed my flock of bantams. Two survivors were injured. The one I'm calling Glory for right now had her head chomped on. Her whole face was a grotesque, mauled mass of blood and meat. Her beak was off center and her tongue hung out. I've done everything I...

    Sick BO Pullet - Please Help

    Our 5 1/2 month old BO Pullet has very gradually started to act ill. It was tough to notice at first. First we noticed her growing lack of interest in food.

    Sick rooster?

    So I have a rooster who seems a little... off, today. For one, he didn’t run out when I poured the food into their pen, but he was drinking water. He kept wanting to go back under the coop and stand there, but I thought maybe being free range for a bit would help him. He’s pecked at a few things...

    our 6 month old jersey giant has been hiding out on her own for three days. We had another hen get sick a month or two ago and recover after a day so we weren’t too worried at first. But now her normally bright red comb seems to be darkening and she’s really low energy. I thought it looked...

    Chickens won’t eat

    I switched my girls off of their chick feed and started feeding them fodder. They will not eat it, I’ve mixed some of their old chick feed in it so they would try it but they just don’t eat. What should I do?
