  1. i thought of the moulting but she isnt even a year old and i have ben told that they dont moult in their first year? and isnt it a little late for a moult anyway?
  2. we figure that tiggywinkle is at the top of the pecking order as she is usually the ne doing all the pecking?
  3. i was out with the girls earlier and noticed tiggywinkle has a little bald patch under her ear/ top of her neck.... its about the size of a 10p. no bald patches anywhere else the other chooks are fine.... ive looked for mites etc and nothing. but am still a little concerned?! what are the other causes? i know they mault but i was told they doint until their second year?!

  5. We got our chooks in the spring, everything is going well, they seem so happy. i was out with them earlier and noticed tiggywinkle has a little bald patch under her ear/ top of her neck.... its about the size of a 10p. no bald patches anywhere else the other chooks are fine.... ive looked for mites etc but am still a little concerned?!
  6. i was going to take her to the vet but...... SHE LAID HER FIRST EGG!!!!!! it was small but it was an egg!!! bless her! no harm done, she is as happy as ever and now actually quite sociable! a new woman!!! ALL IS WELL!
  7. poos are foamy. ive looked at her vent and there is nothing there, she is still sitting!

  9. i know isnt just, im just worried about her... ive got to leave for work at 12 so hopefully she would have achieved something by then!
  10. its only this morning i think she is aobut 20 weeks, just about to lay, has had yellow poos..... ive been told that may be undeveloped yolks. this morning she came flying out of the coop... she ste a bit then started stitting.... its only been this morning. i know it sounds silly. but could an egg be stuck, when she does stand her bottom aims for the ground, (not goot at expaining things) she had a little poo with a spot of blood in it..... so worried,i dont drive and my partner is at work, ill take her to the vet on the bus if i have too but i dont want to upset her...... am i over reacting?!
  11. She has been sitting, but everytime she trys to stand up she falls over a couple of seconds later, she looks. like she is straining. very quiet..... im worried something isnt right? please reassure me
  12. We have been waiting such a long time for little sugarblosoom to pop one out, we are like the most proud parents. she developed her comb (we noticed on tuesday) and this morning all the hens popped out at 630 am and sugarblossom has been sitting on a mound in the middle of the run ecer since..... will today be the day?
  13. oh i know what that is the other two do it, however to behonest, sugarblosson has never let us with in 10 feet of her so we havent witnessed her doing it
  14. crouching? im alittle confused what that is? she does sit down a lot... always has
  15. to be honest im not too sure, i think she was a bout 12-14 weeks when we brought them home so she must be about 18-20 weeks.... it purely only a guess
