    Stumbling chicken

    Hey guys! I’m new here and we need help! One of my about 6-7 mo lavender Orpington hens is stumbling around, off balance. Anytime she leans forward to peck or tries to walk/run, she ends up falling face first. She often flaps to sit back up and seems to go backwards better than forward. She...

    Off Balance Pullet

    I have a new pair of 12 week old legbars. One was slightly quiet and slept more when first brought home but I have now noticed that she's having trouble walking, she's very off balance and wobbly. She prefers to sit down on her hocks. I've checked both feet and legs and can't see any obvious...

    Strangest situation / sick bird?!

    Hi everyone, Yesterday morning around 11am we went out to check on the flock. We were shocked... Some of our girls were standing over another that was laying on her side, pecking at her. Feathers were all over the ground. No commotion, no fighting back, no blood anywhere. No big feathers...
