    Symptomatic hen, can't account for illness

    I have a VERY sick bantam buff laced polish hen (frizzle). She is 1.5 years of age. On Friday it was warm and I let the chickens out to free range. She was fine and running around like the little spunk she is. Yesterday, Saturday, I found her crouched, wings down, head down, backside curved...

    Bumble foot that won't go away

    My polish hen is about three years old and has bumble foot. She weighs around 5 pounds maybe even less and we've been treating her with oral amoxicillin, epsom salt soak, betadine soak, and antibiotic creams.

    6 week bantam polish color and gender?

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me what coloring my fabulous 6 week old bantam polish will end up being and your guess on Cockerel or pullet? I can't see any hint of comb under all that crest! I've never had a polish before and I'm in love.
