  • hello sorry but without knowing the symptoms and circumstances we cant even guess at what is going wrong  i should think the best way to find out and to be 100% certain is to have an autopsy done on one that has died  i wish you luck  kath

  • hello Kelsie  sorry to hear your sad story  im a bit confused as to who was hurt - the hen or the chick Sandies given you brilliant advice if it was the hen if it was the chick then possibly the hen has rejected it and tossed it out . i had this…

  • hisorry to hear about your losses sounds like an infectious respiratory disease but without an autopsy its hard to say which one exactly as they all have similar symptoms . mycoplasma is usually diagnosed if the eyes are bubbly , coryza is an upper…
  • hi sorry to hear ypur duck is unwell  ive no experience with ducks but can suggest a few things  if they eat food with a high water content then it will make their poop more watery so cut down on the lettuce and melon for a while and her poop sho…

  • Hi if anything is broken then youd need a vet to strap him up properly  if hes just bruised then plenty of rest and a high protein diet supplemented with vitamins would help - either buy drops for fowl or human baby drops  sometimes shock can mak…

  • thanks girls  no sign of a break at all i took her back to the vets on tuesday as i discovered a lump on her side of the bad leg - it came away in my hand - a large crust leaving a gaping deep wound (missed previously by myself and 2 vets) so shes …

  • thanks very much Sandie that was such a sad story about Arielle- much harder to handle than losing a chicken im left with 7 - 2 chickens and 5 bantams and wont be adding to them this year . It looks like SallySioux has finished laying and the 2 sil…
  • hi sorry to hear about the attack  its a bit late to strap the wing  if its broken but sounds possibly like its more painful because of the wound . ive had a couple of chooks attacked in the past by foxes and a dog and they seem to take a few weeks…
