"Sour crop can sometimes be the result of an impacted crop. Have you checked for that? If not, feel her crop. If it feels empty, no worries. If full and pliable, like silly putty, it's impacted. For an impacted crop give some olive oil - a few…"

"I did not see any swelling that might indicate a scorpion sting--but it is hard to tell unless it happens on the feet :p  If it is the heat, or if that is contributing, then I am hoping the time in the house helps.  I just noticed some…"

Mysterious chicken illness

Hello Everyone,I am at a loss right now and am hoping your collective wisdom can help.  I have an apparently sick hen.  She is about 4-5 years old.  In the last 48 hours she has stopped eating.  The first day she spent the entire day just sitting on the perch in the coop.  I brought her inside.  She drinks water, but does not eat anything.  I tried to tempt her with strawberry tops yesterday.  She took a couple but immediately dropped them.  She spends her time standing and sitting in the box…See More

Hi Neil, I would like a white and black or an all black. I have other young poultry and would like to integrate him or her then find a mate once sexed. Will bringing home only one work for you? I will actually be in your area around 7 tonight and could pick one up.
