Backyard chickens are pretty easy to care for on any homestead, but just like other animals they can fall ill sometimes. Finding a chicken vet can be difficult, and this leaves chicken owners pretty much on their own to learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of common chicken illnesses. So I teamed up with a colleague to write about how chicken owners can tell if their birds are ill, and what they should do if one of their birds gets sick. Chickens are the new backyard pet, thanks to their gentle natures, ease of management and the delicious fresh eggs.
Chick season will soon be in full swing. If you are new to having backyard chickens and just starting out caring for baby chicks, you should be aware of a potentially life-threatening, but easily treatable condition that is fairly common, affecting mainly shipped day-old chicks. It can kill the chick fairly quickly if not treated immediately, so knowing how to treat this condition is an important part of caring for baby chicks.
A parent bird has been spotted feeding its chick a cigarette butt, highlighting environmental concerns and prompting a wave of anger at careless smokers. Time to ban them, everywhere! What about our rights?
Chicken skin, on the other hand, is not pretty. Chicken keepers become worried and upset and when see it. There are many reasons why your chicken might look bare, and several of them are of no cause for concern.
About Backyard or Battery? Rescue Who lives at Chicken Run Rescue? The Inconvenient Truth Roosters are the most cruellly treated sex of the most cruelly treated species on earth. Since they are of no value in the production of eggs, a quarter billion male chicks roosters a year are disposed of at the hatchery.
I am so delighted to share all the information I have learned on how to raise baby chicks. Whether you are dreaming of fresh eggs, learning to be more self-reliant, looking for a great pet or wanting your own home-grown chickens for meat, just about anyone can raise chickens. I love my chickens.
