  1. Little Aggy was PTS this morning - she got a lot worse overnight. RIP little Aggy Woo Woo xx
  2. She seems to have a puffy tummy and crop but I'm not really an expert. She was being bullied by the others earlier which drew blood on her comb So, we sprayed her comb (plus me) with gentian violet then decided to keep her away from the others anyway so she is now all cosy in a straw-filled box in the dining room. Luckily it's tiled as she's now passing green and stinky poos. I'll ring the vets first thing and take her in tomorrow.
  3. Our oldest hen Agnes has been off colour since Christmas. She seems to perk up for a time and then looks poorly again but this morning she looks dreadful. All girls are up to date with their worming (with Flubenvet) and Aggy is the only one who looks ill. Her comb is dark in colour and seems to have shrunk, her tail is down and she is so hunched over that her tummy is almost touching the ground. She waddles around the garden with the others but just stands and watches them dustbathe and play about. She is eating and drinking fine and her feathers are in great condition. Last week her rear end was in a mess so we gave her a bath (plus blow dry!!) which cleared the problem and has been fine ever since. We can't find any crawlies on her (or the others) at all. Any idea what it coud be or could it just be old age? We've had her since POL (Sept '09). Thank you Annie
  4. Sorry to hear of your loss I was scanning the threads to see if I coudl get some info on one of our chooks who seems a bit off colour today - I've just seen her lay a green poo (looks a bit like pesto) with a high ratio of white on top. She's an ex batt too and has been looking "old" for the past few weeks. I'll see how she is tonight but will take her to the vets tomorrow. Thanks for the orginal post.
  5. Congrats on your first egg!! An egg-citing time
  6. I'd have to do something, i like the idea of asking about the free range eggs. I reported my old next door neighbour (hideous, hideous family) to the RSPCA for neglecting their rottweiler. I tried talking to her first but got a load of abuse including threats to me, my house and car. After the RSPCA had been, I got a brick through my window and a solicitors letter for "harassment" but the dog got taken in to care so it was worth it. Good luck
  7. Mine definitely don't like the police helicopter or the metal wheelbarrow
  8. It's lovely to hear there are good neighbours around
  9. I found red mites in our Eglu last night - gutted I was itchy all night too!! Good luck to everyone with their extermination plans
  10. Just an update - Anna has lost some feathers over the weekend and is red around the feather "root". Have cleaned out the Eglu this afternoon and we have red mite.
  11. RIP Stan - happy scratching up there xx
  12. Sorry your girl is poorly - are they wormed up to date? Two weeks is quite a long time - maybe a trip to the vet is in order....
