    Speckled sussex laying fart eggs and soft shelled eggs, also diarrhea?

    Hi everyone, sorry for the long post but I wanted to give as much context as possible! Our chicken story is unconventional as a hen turned up in our garden and was never claimed by anyone (if you can name her breed from the photo I would love to know!). She is a sweet girl and we felt she needed...

    Soft-Shelled/Shell-less Eggs

    Hello All! I have a bantam easter egger that is a year + a few months old. She seems very healthy and isn’t picked on or bullied by anyone else in the flock.

    Soft/thin Shelled Eggs Overnight off the Roost

    Hi All, I’m a bit worried about my Olive egger. She was egg bound with a soft egg twice in the last couple months to the point where I gave her warm bath and brought her inside. Thankfully both times the rest came out. I added oyster shells in another dish to the coop (it’s in their food too)...

    Please help, sour Crop? Respiratory Problem?

    I have a 5 month old Light Brahma that has for months made weird noises. Always squeaks when she eats, and sneezes. Not every time, but enough that it stands out. I got two at the same time, and she is noticeably smaller than the other. Again, at first I didn’t think much of it but I’m wondering...

    Chronic shell-less egg layer

    I have been playing detective for a few days looking for what I thought was a egg eater, but it turns out my favorite hen has been laying shell-less eggs.
