Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Oh wow... So much catching up to do on this thread!! Only two of them show the same symptoms (snuffly and on the weak ish side when it comes to jumping up... ). Peckford and Dodo (one of the new girls). Doris and Booboo didn't show any of the symptoms before they died, and only Booboo was on the sle...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

And he's back in the garage, in his cage... He just still isn't strong enough to go up the ladder as he has to jump up and he can't do that yet...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Lol on the autospell 😁 I think it's time for Peckford to rejoin the flock now. Still has a bit of a runny nose but it's not constant and his behaviour around the girls is much better, he walks tall again, doesn't fall asleep, doesn't fall over (bless him he was so weak on his first couple outings th...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Thank you Rick for that I shall do my best to give him all this to help him. I've let him have a roam again tonight as he is even better and also all day in a cage can't be fun for him or his legs. His tail is up, he's not gone to sleep in the middle of the garden , he's got good colours. He's even ...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

I do share your ideas about a more pleasant way to go! Booboo the girl I isolated with Peckford rejoined the flock a few hours later. She didn't really have a problem in the end - other than being greedy! I think this whole thing is making me paranoid and I see impacted crop everywhere lol Peckford ...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Doris (the girl we lost yesterday) pretty much went like your bluebell did BYM. I found her in the nesting box, so she went to sleep and that was it. She was a small pekin frizzle and inly yesterday was still running up and down the garden for fear of missing anything! Maternal was definitely not on...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Hi Thank you all for the advice, experience sharing and insights in the chicken health. I used to keep hybrids in the past (not the bantams type) and other than the dreaded red mite, i never had any problems at all. But now all of a sudden with this flocks things are rapidly on the decline, or so it...

Re: Poorly Peckford - Any ideas please?

Oh! Peckford! His comb is red which is a good sign (not lacking oxygen which would be a very bad sign) and feathers look glossy. Its something odd going on though as Marigold says. You say others are unusually sleepy too? No the others seem fine actually in comparison. It is really just Peckford. I...

Re: New chicks!

Peep and Booboo are / were both broody again, and are sharing the sitting duties. We have been checking for chicks hatching everyday because I forgot to take a note of when they started and so didn't have clue when they would be coming,... Trouble is that they must have come in the night and we forg...
