Hi everybody,

I have found that a lot of people that make a thread about their emergency sometimes don't get answers until its too late so i am making this thread so that all those people needing IMMEDIATE help! I will need other people to join to help in answering too!

When you have a problem please write New Emergency: In Bold and Italics. Also, please give us a good description of what is going on as well as a picture if it will be helpful but don't give us a marathon story please. Here are some guidelines on what information to give us:

1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.)
2) What is the behavior, exactly.
3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?
4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms?
5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.
6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.
7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.
8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.
9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far?
10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?
11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.
12) Describe the housing/bedding in use

When replying to an emergency or to advice someone has given please quote their text so that we know whois talking to who!


So hit us with your problems!

I'll subscribe and try to keep an eye on it.

It is most helpful as well, when in the forums to choose "show unanswered", this will brings up posts that are unanswered and needs help - you can do this under each forum category. Some posts do go unanswered in the threads because of not enough useful information, double/multiple posts, very long opening thread (don't want a book - just the facts), not enough people to answer all the questions and sometimes...well, sometimes you just don't have a clue.

If we do answer in this thread, I do recommend that we quote the "emergency" that is being specifically addressed. It can get confusing if someone is needing help with respiratory illness and someone else is helping another person with say...bumblefoot. Treatment options/methods are very different, so making sure you know who is being addressed will help as well.
