    Sorry about your rooster Julie. I hope you can figure out which one of your other birds caused the injury. Then maybe build a small separate pen or send him to the soup pot.

    I don't know but does this sound like egg bound or some thing else?

    For a few days now, my hen has been a little tired looking and lethargic. Well I check her abdomen area and it's a little hard and swollen and that made me wonder if she is egg bound, so I decided to ask you guys.
    Thanks in advance.

    It might be, have you tried a bath and massage. If there is a larger than normal egg stuck, it will take lots of relaxing to get it out.

    If anyone tried to watch this and couldn't I adjusted the privacy settings so it can be watched now. Sorry about that.

    On the shoe covers... Several studies have shown the show covers are not effective and can even worsen contamination. You are better off with dedicated shoes and a 10% bleach foot bath. For visitors a stack of rubber clogs or crocks are perfect. Now to be really technical even the bleach isn't perfect as a 15 minute contact time is required.

    I brought my first chicks home this April and now have 3 girls who are around 5 months old. One of them, I think the Andalusian has laid 2 eggs. The first was on Sept 7 and the second was Sept 16. Is that pretty normal for when they first start laying? She laid both in the same spot and I have searches for hidden ones. Just wondering.

    This surpasses cute! Stop all the soul-searching and give the sweetheart some eggs to hatch.

    I haven't tried giving her a bath, but I will do that now.
