Daisy’s Trip to the Vet

  • Post category:Health

Daisy has been poorly the last day or so - her abdomen is lumpy and her demeanour has deteriorated sharply. Unfortunately we know these signs and all that we can do in this situation is give her the best final days we can - plenty of treats and cuddles and…

Bitsy, Lucky and Willow’s Trip to the Vet

  • Post category:Health

A trip to the vet today for Bitsy, Lucky and Willow. Lucky was the main concern - she had a prolapse over a week ago and whilst this has remained in place, we felt an egg inside her and this needed to be investigated. The entrance to her oviduct is…

Hazel and Marigold go to the Vet

Marigold has been unwell for about 2 weeks and Hazel's health has taken a dip the last day so time to go back to the vet to get them checked over again. Marigold has been very quiet recently and despite being on antibiotics, anti-inflamtories and steroids, she wasn't improving. After…

  • Post category:Health

Lupin has gone downhill the last couple of days and Harebell and Jasmine were due a check-up after their visit to the vet a few weeks ago, so all 3 hens put their seatbelts on and we drove to the vets. Unfortunately Lupin's condition wasn't good. Despite medication for the…

Tess and Tulip go to the Vet

  • Post category:Health

Just two hens this week that needed to see the vet – this time It's Tess and Tulip! Since rehoming, Tess has displayed strange behaviours with her eyes – she closes them a lot! Otherwise her demeanour is normal but what seems like every few minutes she closes her eyes,…

A quadruple vet appointment today as some of the girls have been under the weather for a few days and we wanted to get them checked out. For Blossom, Harebell and Orchid, they have crops with fibrous material in them that has reduced, but not gone completely. Their demeanour is…

After a recent health check I had a few concerns about Campion and Ruby and a current 'dirty knickers' issue with Peony meant a triple appointment at the vet today. I weigh the hens every 2 weeks and the last 3 weights for Campion and Ruby have been increasing steadily…

A Few Sneezes

  • Post category:Health

There have been a few sneezes from the flock recently and with Larkspur seeming the worst we took her to the vet this week to get checked out. She took along Marigold and Thrift too as they'd been off-colour also and could provide the vet with extra sound effects if…

White’s First Trip to the Vet

  • Post category:Health

In the 3 years that we've had White, she's been relatively healthy and trouble-free. The last few weeks however, she's had quiet moments that have usually been followed by her laying a soft shelled egg, but she's bounced back to her usual self. In the last few days however, she's…
