  2. Emergencies, Illness, Meds & Cures
    This morning, I noticed my 3-month-old chicken, Tokay, did not touch her food. She also seems a little lethargic - has been sitting down mostly and sometimes just closing her eyes while standing.

I put my chicken in my house to recover and didn't let the other chickens out for a week. I reintroduced the healed chicken to the flock (it went well). Should I be worried about the...

    Hello! We just got some chicks last week from our local feed store, but for some obscure reason they mixed the Buff Orpingtons with Freedom Rangers. We picked out a dozen of the lightest colored chicks, hoping they were Buffs, but now that they're around 2 weeks old we aren't so sure! I grew up...
