    HELP! Hen making a gurgling sound!

    Ok, so I got 3 new hens last week. Gold laced Orpington, Black sex link, and a Cukoo maran. Today I got up and the Gold laced Orpington is making a gurgling sound. What do I do? Will she die? Will it spread to the rest of my flock? I didn't hear anyone else making the sound.

    Eye infection? Pink eye? What’s wrong?!!?

    Hi everyone, My Ayam Cemani has something wrong with his eye. He’s 10 weeks old and I just got him on Wednesday. Yesterday he started shutting his eye a lot, and today there’s a bit of white pus in the corner today. Does anyone know what could possibly be wrong with him. Thanks.
