    Chicken acting sick

    I have a black australorp hen who I found standing where my chickens hang out off to the side with her eyes closed and sort of puffed up feathers. She’s one of our less friendly chickens, and I went to pet her and she just stood there. Usually she’d run off or move away. Then, when I threw some...

    Hello BYC. I have a problem... I’ve had this hen who seemed a little “sick” for a while. She’s had a really pasty butt, and seemed to be getting picked on by the others.

    Egg Bound? Maybe Broken Egg?

    So recently I had a Rhode Island Red get a vent prolapse. I had never dealt with it before, but after two weeks of treatment she was back to her usual self! I was so excited. But then, two days after I put her back with the flock, she tried to lay an egg. And it was a soft shelled. I noticed she...
