    We have just purchased 2 Wheaten American Game Bantam chicks on Saturday, and they are awesome. We purchased a home in the country with and decided to raise chickens. Your website has been a great help already! Thank you!

    Hello! I am brand new to this site...
    Trying to figure it all out...
    I actually had kinda an emergency type question about a hen...
    She seemed fine just yesterday,
    Today, one of her eyes are swollen shut, kinda goopy/bubbly maybe... and she is acting like it's hard to breath, and will "honk" ocassionally...
    I have 5 hens... others seem fine, one was kinda sick, gurgling and a little snotty, last week, but totally fine now, no meds given...

    Hi! [​IMG]I'm so sorry you have a sick hen! If you will repost in (copy paste. start a thread) with more detail, breed age, housing etc in Emergencies and diseases, you may get a faster response. Here's the link, and add those great pics as well. Best of luck!
