Pls, help identify what's wrong with this roo's legs.

Poor thing. Looks a lot like an advanced stage case of scaly leg mites to me. Are the tops of his legs bleeding or just really raw? I had to deal with scaly leg mites about a month ago, so although I'm fairly new to the whole poultry raising thing (two years), those legs look similar to what my hens...

Travel plans

:banana:
That would be awesome - thanks so much, WLLady and baronrenfrew!
I work downtown and get out to the west end of Ottawa regularly, so can meet up somewhere in either area if that works for you, baronrenfrew.

Eye drops for chicks?

I think the reason for using a tea bag is because it works as a poultice to draw out infection.

Eye drops for chicks?

Yes, what Ross said ... I use chamomile tea bags soaked in warm water, and held against eyes for a few minutes, a couple of times a day.

Friendliest Chicken Breed?

War on Weasels

I don't think The Swan Guy made it over to this site - don't see his username in the Members list. Does anyone know how to get in touch with him? His advice was invaluable to me when I had a rodent problem last winter, and he helped another PSO member to fix their fisher problem too. I'm sure he'd h...

Anyone else dealing with early broodies?
