Just a question, does she sleep on the floor at night or is she roosting on bars? I ask that because sometimes the nerves in the legs can be damaged if they spend a long time sitting on their legs.

My Brahma hen had those funny necks movements. I wormed her and I made sure she was drinking. Cleared up after a short while.

Re: In all my years of keeping chickens ...Buzzard attacks

OMG! so sorry to hear of your losses. :crybaby: Poor kids, poor birds. :(

Can you use string to zig zag accross your runs with CD's attached every foot or so?
Maybe that would put them off if they can't directly fly in. Sorry can't be of more help.

Re: Sour crop remedies??

Nystatin is a human medicine so you might know someone who's had it from their docs?

Can you ring around vets to see if you can get some? I'll pm you.

Re: Sour crop remedies??

My Murtle came bouncing back after I gave her Nystan. First day 1mil 5 times as she was at deaths door. Day 2 1 mil 4 times.
Day 3 1 mil 3 times. After 3 days she was back to normal. Watch out for it coming back.
Good luck.
