    I recently got into chickens and I got 6 of them about 4 months ago. 5 hens and 1 rooster. They are doing great btw. A family member thought I needed more to go in the large coop I built so about 4 weeks ago I inherited 4 babies. So they are roughly 4 month apart. I have had the babies outside...

    This morning I noticed my five y/o hen expelling liquid from her beak. I am assuming this is sour crop, since her crop is large and squishy and it smells sour; she has the same symptoms as a hen that I lost back in May due to no treatment. I don't want her to die like the other one, does anyone...

    Hello all, Nice to meet you here. I am interested in starting my own backyard flock, but I am worried about Salmonella. What are your experiences with Human Salmonellosis? How likely is it to catch salmonella from your flock? Did you have any symptoms of diarrhea/ vomitting/ cramps? Did you...

    Hi there. So we have bantam chicken, and we recently realised one of the ladies has a tumor like growth on two parts of her skin. I actually have pictures, I will try to upload them. But basically the tumors are dark and hard and resemble burned skin. I'm not sure if she was attacked badly by...

    Specifically in the fenced in Greenhouse of the school Greenhouse Club where they'd have a coop. Should I get chickens? How many? Their manure might be good for compost, and they'd be a neat addition. I'm not sure about the size of the entire fenced area, maybe 10 meter squared with a 8 by 8m...

    My hen, Rosy, is six and is a Rhode Island Red. I was gone for a few weeks, during which the neighbors took care of the girls. When I came back today, the other two hens were acting fine. But Rosy is hardly moving. She just stands in one spot even when I pet her. She isn't interested in food...
