    Urgent: Ruptured air sac not healing

    I’ve been trying to get advice for this though my usual alleys but I’m not getting the information that I need so I’m trying a parrot forum instead. Birds are birds right? I have a baby chicken with a ruptured air sac which I have been treating for WEEKS now and it just isn’t healing. We went...

    I know that this is usually more of a place for parrots and I have those too but this post mainly involves a chicken. I’m entertaining the idea of making some prosthetics for a rescue hen. She came to us with a damaged beak and more recently ended up with frostbite which has led to the loss of...

    Sunken eye in a chicken

    My poor rooster was attacked by a dog and now he can’t open one of his eyes and it’s sunken in. And when I go to look at it there’s white clear stuff covering it but it can move and from what I’ve seen his actual eye seems ok. Is there a way to help him with that? also he has a few bites in his...

    Corynebacterium falsenii in a rooster

    I have a not-even-a-year-old white leghorn rooster who has white discharge from the corner of his beak - when it dries it kinda looks like dried glue. He's been tested and they found "corynebacterium falsenii" and "klebsiella pneumoniae" and he's on his second round of anti-biotics because the...

    RIP Kiki...

    This morning my chicken Kiki passed. :sorrow: I noticed three days ago that she appeared lethargic and very sick. She was very thin, and it seemed that she hadn't been eating much. I gave her mealworms because that was the only thing she'd eat, and put apple cider vinegar in her water as...

    Bald spot on chicken’s head
