Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Peckford has rejoined his girls. He was really chumping at the bits tbf and after a further thorough examination, I let him loose in the garden... He went straight for his favourite, little Booboo. His eye is still closed in the morning and practically open in the evening. But there is nothing appar...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Ah it would seem that I have done it again and pressed the wrong button - my earlier post has disappeared! Anyway, great news to report today.... He came out of the roosting box on his own this morning, ate and drank before getting more rest. Then when I went to see him after work, he was out again,...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

I hear you Marigold... That's exactly why I have been humming and harring about taking him to the vet. It's the first time that I have had a poorly chicken. I am not going to attempt to look in his throat again. I will keep an eye on him and see if he carries on trying to eat and drink today. If he ...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Tried to check his throat, but couldn't. His mouth looks ok. But couldn't see much further. My daughter was helping to keep him calm and holding his head, but I couldn't hold his mouth open wide enough for long enough. I am not very good at this to be fair... Probably too soft and worried I might hu...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

I didn't get enough time to do that this morning before I went to work as I was on my own as well... I tried but holding him so he remained calm, and getting his beak open at the same time just wasn't happening and I didn't want to spook his too much so i will have to do this with my daughter when i...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Hi Chris Thank you for that. Just checked on him this morning and I can see quite clearly that his eye is swollen. I don't think I saw the difference between the two yesterday (even it was pointed out) but yes it is. Not overly, just enough to notice a difference. His crop isn't impacted. He appears...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Thank you Margaid for that. I haven't quite seen one similar... But I am hoping that's good news... One of them was quite close and might suggest worms? Doesn't explain the eye though... I haven't given them apple cider vinegar for a while, so perhaps it's time i did that again. Just in case...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Thank you MrsBiscuits. His eye may look a little swollen but it isn't. When I had him on my lap after examining him, stroking him he got relaxed enough to start dozing off and his good eye closed looked just the same as the one that won't open... I will keep an eye on it however (no pun intended) in...

Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Hi all, I hope everyone is ok? Since this morning we have noticed Peckford is not himself. He keeps one eye shut, didn't come out of the coop all singing and dancing as he usually does, in fact came back in a few times. We haven't actually heard him crow all day. He went roaming with the girls in th...

Re: Chinese painted quail help

Yes Marigold 😆 and Martha is insisting on sitting on eggs again! Of course we are getting 3 a day now with her girls laying too... Though I don't think their eggs are fertile because Charley only seem interested in the one love of his life lol 😅 nevertheless I had forgotten to remove the eggs last w...
