    I was doing chores yesterday morning when I noticed one of my dwellings had a swollen face, I tossed her in a spectate pen for a few hours to see if maybe she had just popped her jaw out, however when I got back she has built up quite a bit of foam around her mouth/nose, I gave her a unit of...

    I noticed this morning that my chicken was alone in the coop, I thought nothing of it, when the others were eating she was nowhere to be seen. She was still in the coop. She normally doesn't let me come close to her but she just lied there and let me pick her up... She is acting very tired...

    Long time no see, everyone! Unfortunately I come with a pretty confusing situation. My one year old Nigerian dwarf doe has always had this weird cough and yawn thing.

    I woke up this morning to check on my pregnant doe who’s close and her eye was like this. It’s sunken in and funky. Her nose is also a little gunky. Anyone have any ideas? It wasn’t like this last night. Here is her other eye for comparison.

    Hi everyone! I posted about this doe a little while ago because of her scabs on her udder and general sickness. The forum determined it was probably staph, and so I’ve been treating her for that. She’s due literally any day now. Last night, I was brushing her (like I do every night) and felt...

    So I got this doe, Georgia, in January. The owners tricked me into thinking she was super pregnant and healthy, but that turned out to be anything but. I got her back and took her to the vet and he told me she had tapeworms, an upper respiratory infection, and that her blood test came back...

    One of our goats had triplets on December 5th - 2 girls and a boy. The first girl died 24 hours after birth. The little boy was found passed away at 3 days old. The last little girl seemed weak and not well, so we brought her in. We syringe fed her and had to give an enema due to constipation...

I noticed today he was pretty weak so I watched him for about an hour, took his temperature and it was 104, so I took him to the vet and they gave him banamine and another antibiotic. He improved for about 3 hours, nursed great, walked...

    Is there any significant difference in how interstitial pneumonia presents in a one-month-old kid? Other than dosage, is there a differential in how to treat?

Appealing to all the chicken friends I can for help, I have had FIVE chickens die in the past week….crazy! 2 silkie roos, one buff orpington/silkie mix 5mo chick, buff orpington hen, and barred rock hen. So strange, I guess it could be heat or anything? It’s been way wet out here, if...
