    Egg Bound, Constipation, Something Else ...?

    Hello lovely chicken people! My elderly hen (8 year old Barred Rock) seems to be a little off. Her walk was a little stiffer than usual this morning (she usually walks more in a waddle because I suspect she has a little chicken arthritis, but it was more obvious today). Also, she seemed to be...

    Strange egg

    One of our hens was sick and didn’t lay for about a week. This egg was in the nesting box (our eggs are fertilized). The shell was very thin and broken and this was inside. I don’t know if it was from the sick hen or a new layer that shares the same coop because it was so small and a lighter...

    Chicken unable to stand.

    My 3 year old hen is unable to stand or walk. She has zero balance and rolls over if left with no support on the ground. Her legs still feel firm and she can curl her toes. If I’m balancing her, she can perch on my arm. There’s no sign of injury. Her vent is clear and she is otherwise healthy. I...

    PLEASE HELP!!😖 My hen is ill and i don’t know why!!

    Hey guys, my hen is ill and I have no clue why! She makes these weird gargling noises, she sneezes a lot and mucus comes out, and it’s pretty scary because her eyes go full wide and she tilts her head up when she sneezes. Her breath also is a bit raspy, and she’s shying away and hiding more and...
