I just managed to pick up one of my hens that I know had a couple of lumps just under her vent, I thought it was dried on poo because I managed to get a couple off a few days ago but I tried washing the remaining lumps off today and they won’t budge. Is there a condition of a row of small lumps on the bottom?

One of my two month old chickens has the appearance of an owl. She stays off to herself. She seems to be eating and drinking right now but she’s had this weird appearance since Wednesday. What might be wrong?

One of my Lohman hens is behaving strangely.She is afraid of walking down the ladder in the mornings and I have noticed that she has started to walk backwards sometimes,appearing to be disoriented at times. She is eating and drinking normally and laying regularly.She is a friendly and sweet girl and I am a bit worried.

One of my hens (less than 1 yr old) has been looking ill for a couple of days. She seems to be drinking and eating normally. I have noticed her droppings are very yellow, in the part where they should be white. Not particularly runny or smelly. Cannot find this as a symptom of any particular problem, and have not seen it before. Any suggestions?

Hi I have a chicken which is walking as if she's drunk. Sideways and then low down to the ground. She's just molted and lost a lot of feathers but she's still eating and drinking any suggestions? Thankyou

My chicken is standing with her eyes shut and she doesn’t move until I touch her. What is wrong with her?
