    Here's a snapshot of my experience. Breathe. Settle in for what may take a while. They are lovely animals!

    WOW Amiga, I just read through your thread. So sorry for your loss. I looks like things are getting better though.

    An update on our wounded runner. She back with the rest of the flock again. Totally blind in one eye and usually seems somewhat lost. She still squeaks like a duckling too but seems to get along ok so far. Bonnie has been moved out of the pen and into the chicken pen with Clyde, he's much happier.

    Nice to read of her progress. Good for you all!

    Things are pretty good. Since spring, hormones have made for some discord and we have two flocks, side by side.

    Pig sounds? Like snorting? At night? All the time? Have you any reason to suspect respiratory or sinus problem?

    No I do not assume it has to do with sinuses or such things. It is when it quacks. It comes out like a pig. Its not like a snort either. I will see if I can record it some how and put it in here.
