    I understand all that........But Fat Birds fed to much fillers do develop the common illnesses posted........I am sorry you disagree.....Only trying to help......In all my years with Birds I have honestly never encountered one of these problems.......Healthy Birds =great egg production....


    Cheers!

    Where did I disagree? Are you having a conversation with yourself?


    Sorry. Didn't mean to sound so snarky. Been a rough morning. I'm tired. One of the hens locked herself in the coop somehow and was screaming like the coyote got her. Rattled my cage.
    I don't think my hen is fat...do you?[​IMG]

    That's her next to rooster.

    FYI, a stuck egg is not a problem if they can still poop. [​IMG]

    Did you mean to post this in another thread, 'cause I don't see any posts here where someone has disagreed with you. [​IMG]

    I'll try that next. She's in a quiet dark room resting right now under heat lamp on heat pad. We've been doing stuff to her all morning and I'm giving her 20-30 minutes of time in between treatment. She's not protesting to any of it but I don't want to stress her.
