    Freshly Laid Egg
  1. Hello, I don’t want to worry you, but watch your hen carefully, and inspect every egg. Had boody egg before and was at the begging of problems with a reproductive truck. How old is your hen, and how many egg she lays a week?
  2. Thank you for the information. Just checked their web. the reviews are grate and Dr. Maderios sounds knowledgable. its 2h drive from my home, so no quick journey for my hen but possible on cooler day (36”C in South London 🥵).
  3. HI, I'm new to this forum but have 3 chickens and 2 JRT Jack and Ginger, they are rescued dogs, so came with some baggage, especially Jack the nervous and mischievous one. Jacks first reaction while meeting the girls was: trembling and liking lips (which is sign of nervousness. No I’m going to eat you😉) Jack was trained for about a week, to be around the girls. There was another week of supervision and the introduction was complete, he never touched them, I believe he actually respects their space, if anything he bothers them on occasion for a play, as he thinks if fun when they chase him. We started Jacks introduction to a chickens after sniffing girls run and coop, with my head hen Browni, on my lap and Jack on the lead. 20min with treats and reward every time he calmed down and he was able to sniff Browni just a inch a way, we repeated this exercise few more times during the week. The aim of this training for us, was to make my dog understand that the girls are as important as he is and you do not touch it EVER!!! Well, he got it. Have faith in your pooch, he is naturally interested in them but he will learn fast when the boundary is if you guide him. Oh... I have one rule if everyone is free ranging in the garden. The chickens are alway right 😉 so Jack in send away if there is any commotion. Hope that can help.
  4. Hello chickens' lovers. I’m desperate 😫😭 to find a chickens vet. with serious experience on operating on birds and solving complicated illnesses. Someone who is also compassionate, caring and a honest person, ideally located in the South East of England. I live in South East London but I don’t mind travel even few hours, if the vet actually has experience in chickens. My beloved hen developed egg problems, so it was decided she needed to have a 6 months implant to stop her laying eggs, but she suffered bad side effect from the implant. Sadly just after a year from the implant, she started to lay internally. So this time, she was booked for a salpingohysterectomy. Unfortunately the operation was performed 2x in the past 5 months as the Vet at the Trinity Center in Maidstone didn’t remove her uterus correctly and she continued to ovulate without oviduct! I have find out about it, 2 months after the operation, when her abdomen swell in the scar tissue area. At first, symptoms pointed out towards rupture air sack, so I went to the local exotic vet, for a quick treatment to puncture the swollen area with a needle, and yolk started to ooze out😱! My hen was back at Trinity Vet in spite their objections, and they wanted to treat her with antibiotic. I requested a second operation, when they confirmed some remanent uterus tissue possibly was triggering ovary too ovulate. Again 2 months after her second operation, her abdomen swell exactly the same way (only where the scare tissue is). The Trinity vet now thinks is a moderate hernia and no treatment is required and they pretty much discounting continues ovulation. After persistant pointing out that my hen ovulates, the vet. suggested ultrasound for £135. I asked if they notice any organ abnormalities while they were operating on her twice? The answer was “no"! So I rejected this option as I think it would be waste of money. My hen is actually very happy, active, eats and drinks well, but as the swelling grows and skin stretches I live in fear that she may injure herself free ranging which unfortunately happened last Friday. And guess what?! The laceration was oozing yolk again 😱😱😱. My local exotic vet does have knowledge about chickens but not extensive, he agreed that she needs suprelorin implant ASAP, which was injected. Three days later her abdomen continue to swell but, she lost her desire to nest👍, which was always present despite the operations. Her behaviour was always my worry as she was seating in her nest almost every day for few hours, as when she was laying eggs. If the ovulation is the reason she has to big bulges under her abdomen and developing perytinitis 🤞the swelling may stop growing or even recede the skin. Across many years of caring for chickens, I have visited 7 different vets around my area, but the Trinity vet were the only ones who are happy to do operations, but after 4 years of treating my girl there, I have lost my trust as many girls were misdiagnosed, 4 operation were a failure, and etc. So I ‘m desperate to find a vet who knows his chickens🐔🐔🐔 and is compassionate. Any suggestions please🙏🙏🙏
