All Knowing Superchicken

All Knowing Superchicken (4/19)



  1. Went to pick her up for her weekly health check, she crouched , that was on the 26th January. Another implant done on the 28th of January. Hoping this one will last another eight months . She has lost a few feathers today, not many though. Still perky and looks well .
  2. Thanks for the info Egghead68, and for the compliments sandyhas3chucks and LottyJ1. Sorry I took so long to reply , I never received any e-mails about your replies
  3. I'm liking the Welsh theme too . YORATH, which is an Anglicized form of IORWERTH which apparently means "handsome lord" from Welsh ior "lord" and berth "handsome". ALED, Means "offspring" in Welsh. Congratulations, he's very handsome .
  4. I "bit the bullet" 3 years ago. I did tell people the first year that I wouldn't be sending any . It does get easier year after year, as the less you send, the less you receive the less bothered you are . I now only send them to close family (only because I would never hear the end of it from mum ). I don't think you're being "bah humbug" at all. My personal opinion is that they're a total waste of time, money and trees. The Victorians have a lot to answer for .
  5. It's been 6 months since Pudding had her implant . It has done the job I wanted it to do so far . Don't know if it's anything to do with the implant, but she is the most feathered chook I have ever known . It's difficult to see her skin when checking for critters. She is also my heaviest chook now and has put on plenty of weight . Here she is and with her friends, a lovely view of her rump Am on the look out now for when she starts crouching again .
  6. That's how I imagine Granny Weatherwax looks . Unbelievable .
  7. Just when you think they've snapped out of it Eugh! Yet another week of Treacle being broody. I have just been throwing her off the nest when I get home and shutting her out, worked before, but I think she is more determined this time. Out with the broody cage me thinks .
  8. Absolutely outrageous . I would be going down the lines of setting booby traps for the little feinds
  9. This may or may not help, it's about turkeys, but poultry is poultry to me . http://www.hybridturkeys.com/en/Hybrid%20Resources/~/media/Files/Hybrid/Hybrid%20Library/Health/Health_PC1.ashx I found it interesting anyway .
  10. Wow! she is absolutely beautiful Fun times ahead .
  11. Awwwww bless them, give them time they'll work it out
  12. The "50p" sized lump in her crop sounds like it could be the blockage. I would give olive oil and try and massage the lump to see if it will break up and may be a few white maggots after the massage.. Personally I wouldn't give hard grain I would go for a little probiotic yoghurt laced with lifeguard. Also just to let you know that when I purchased avipro and critical care formula, I was advised not to give them together, but could give them on alternate days, not sure why though . Hope you get her sorted xx.
  13. It was a while ago since I was given Tylan soluble for one of mine. The vet would only use Tylan soluble on laying birds because there was no egg withdrawal. Not sure if that helps.
  14. Sorry to hear about your friends girl sandyhas3chucks. I have no real advice to give . I too was at the end of my tether with it. May be a coincidence but when Pudding had her op to remove the 2 eggs and a crushed one and then had the Suprelorin implant, her pendulous crop was no longer. I think it is still pendulous, just not as noticeable as she doesn't eat as much as she used to now she doesn't lay. Have you tried starving her for 24hrs with just avipro and water to rule out a blockage further down?
