    My girl is lethargic, molting and not eating or drinking

    I raise all of my chickens as pets, eggs are secondary. Anyway, Skye is about four now, an Orpington. She's my favorite and my oldest girl since her sisters have passed. She is normally quite rambunctious and picks on the others but has always been gentle and cuddlier to me. She's going through...

    My hen is acting a bit off...

    Hey! My hen Myrdle is acting a bit off. She seems lethargic and quiet. She is also panting a bit and has a pale waddle and comb, but that is probably just the heat. I isolated her with some food and water just to be safe, and she hasn't pooped a lot that I've seen since then. Don't know how much...

    Hen suddenly ill - staggering, not eating, not drinking, very sleepy

    Hello - we rescued 4 commercial barn hens 3 weeks ago (our first ever). 1 has been bullied badly (ironic as she is the largest, with most feathers - but is also the most timid and very sweet) and we have had to intervene a couple of times. The last 2 nights we’ve gone to lock them in the coop...

    I don’t think my chickens sleep...

    So my black stars have a huge coop that we made out of the bottom of a tree house. They each have their own box (3) but never sleep in it. Instead they “stand” on the edge of the box while 2 of them are constantly looking at the ground. EVERY time I go up there I see either 2 or 3 of them...

    Rooster losing balance and sleepy.

    Hey everyone! I must say the past month and some change was pretty rough for me. My hen with canker unfortunately passed away despite my (and your!) efforts. And now my rooster seems to be sick also. I have already confirmed by peeking into his beak that it is not canker, which was the cause of...

    Young 'un sleeps too much and sneezes

    She's just a few months old. We bought three like her to start laying in a few months. The others are fine, but this one got picked on more than the other two for a few days. She's a bit smaller, she sleeps half of the day away, and we hear her sneeze from time to time. She's quarantined now in...

    Lazy or something more?

    Ok, friends, talk me through this. Are my chickens just tired/lazy from a full day yesterday or should I be concerned? They had a very full day yesterday including their first free range field trip, and learning about the awful terrible lawn mower. They had a good day and were all happy at the...

What I thought had gone away has returned, and I am again concerned that something is very wrong with my hen. Cheeko is showing symptoms of being recumbent. She will stand...

    Another Sick Silkie...

    I know there is another post below mine about a sick silkie but I wanted to make a separate post for myself. I know kittens and puppies sometimes get a little discharge from their eyes that gets crusty and you can use a bit of warm water to help open it again. Is it the same with chickens? Is...
