    Can food be bad?

    My hen normally has layers. I just bought a very large bag of grain from a local farmer, in the shop, but very cheap, 5 euros for 10 kilos. It looks to contain crushed corn, whole barley, it is quite dusty. I think my chickens poop goes wrong when I feed it to her, even a small amount. So I am...

    How to get bird poop off your doves feathers?

    Usually I could just knock the bird poop off their feathers but when it's like peanut butter, it's hard to remove every single piece that's stuck. One dove sleeps below another and gets pooped on, even tho there's many more spaces to go cuddle up with each other, he prefers that spot to sleep at...
