  1. Grant at Hunters lodge in guildford is our go to chicken vet, he's excellent on chickens. Not the nearest but we aren't too far from London. By train its 45 min from Waterloo. Good luck!
  2. So much better thank you! I think she was maybe a bit cold. Very busy over the past few days and went to bed with a nice full crop tonight. thank you!
  3. Thank you Mullethunter.
  4. Just to note, the breeder vaccinated her for cocci.
  5. Hi all, Just wondering if its normal to have one chick that is sleepier than the others? Have a three 6 week old Pekin bantams, the frizzle who's the biggest (not sure if oldest) seems to need so much more sleep than the others. Is this a cause for concern? New chick worries here! Also would you sleep them outside? They were at the breeders but is it too cold at night? Thank you in advance!
  6. In the meantime would things like garlic and pumpkin seeds be any help? And safe? Will ring vet asap but just thinking what I can do now...
  7. Just emailed. Yeah the fact she's so teeny might make it harder. Just spoke to the breeder, he was very surprised. Hope she will be okay!
  8. Will ring my vet on Monday. Thank you.
  9. Hi all, So we brought home some growers yesterday and the littlest just pooed a live round worm... they are only 6-8 weeks and small; bantams. I'm wondering if it would it be safe to worm them yet? Or best to wait? Is it a risk to wait? Thanks in advance!

  11. Thank you, I think maybe she's given up. She's had various infections over the past year, poor girl. Think maybe it's just her time. Least she had 2 lovely years of freedom.
  12. Thank you both. That's exactly what I did Cattails on waking this am! Great minds! Sadly tho she can no longer walk, so back to the vets today. Thanks guys.
  13. Hi all, Would love some advice please... One of my chickens has just gone blind, not too sure why. She's older and a rescue. I took her to the vets today and as she's in good health apart from this so he suggested trying to see if she can manage. It was also hard to tell if she is 100% blind or not. She's currently in a flock of 6 who are on the whole pretty gentle. So far only the broody has been unpleasant to her. BUT it's a big WIR... the vet advised creating her a small area where she can find her way and find food easily. I'm not sure what the best option is, would love some help working it out: 1. To add more food/drink stations to current run so she stays with her buddies. But then it is a huge space so maybe cruel? But she knows it. 2..move her to her own small run (but then I don't like that she would be alone??? If I added a buddy I worry for them when reintegrating as I don't see her living that long.... it is a space she's been in before when we first rescuded them. 3. Section of part of the current run so she's along side the others but in a small space- really not 100% sure how.... I think it would have to be the back of the run, which they don't use often so is that too alien. I'm really unsure what's best for her, I'd like to give her a fighting chance and some happiness in whatever set up though. (If she's not getting on okay then I won't let her suffer). I'm erring to the separate run, she seemed happy enough in there earlier when I was trying to work things out. But with a buddy? Or separated in the main run? Can't figure it out and don't want to swap and change on her! Also Just any tips to help her would be very much appreciated..I'm able to give her water by using a running hose but food is much harder. Thanks so much all.
  14. Thanks, am thinking as there are 3 mucky bums just to put in all their water?
  15. Cattails I read this but mine have had raw egg loads and I've never had an issue. Not sure they've connected the dots 🤣
