    Buffs are great birds. I was going to order some with my yearly meat birds (cornish x rocks), but they wouldn't be available until late Aug. So, I ordered 6 Black Jersey Giants instead.

    Maybe Scrambles just needs a spa day. I had a beat up Buff Orp that was being picked on at the tail, and was also raw on her underside. I separated her, gave her a warm bath and washed her. Put her in a pen with heat lamp and fed protein (eggs, meat). She recovered nicely. After about 3 months her wound healed and feathers all grew back. Then she was fine with the other birds. She's gone now, that's why I wanted to order more.

    Oh Scrambles, I'm Praying for the best for you and all of you all.
    Oh, and Scrambles, you is so beautifuls…

    Smokeys, you know I'm looking for the best outcome, so do let us know.
    My 2 little Quaker parrots turned 20 yrs old, in April or May.
    They may have 2 birthdays, one when laid & one when hatched...
    I know there will come the day.... or 2 days....
    Stay strong, Smokeys
    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    Thank you. She is still hanging in there. Because it's 90 degrees outside, and would be a stress on her, she is in the dining room (and not AS dinner). She could not stand up at all yesterday. Today she can. A little. And she is fighting me tooth, beak, nail, claw, whatever when I give her the liquid diet. It comes in a huge feeding syringe and I kid you not some of the stuff is on the walls...I have to take a bath every time I feed her.

    Chickens never stay sick for long , they go one way or the other in pretty short order.
    you may want to supplement the rest of the flock to boost them up.
    also if you see heat stress , wings out , panting, frozen peas or cold watermelon really helps bring them out of danger

    I use poultry cell on my flock when they are under stress, started again today after the heat caused them to stop laying.
    you can buy this at Tractor supply for $12 .

    My other two pet hens seems fine. I picked up each one to weigh them, as Scrambles had lost a lot of weight and I hadn't noticed it, she's so fluffy. Both of the other ones were fine. Big Red is trying to hatch broken egg shells *sighs*. Buttercup got picked up second. At which point Big Red took exception to that and attacked me.

    The cats think the stinky thing in the dining room should leave!

    Scrambles still hanging in there this am. Complained bitterly about taking medicine, but I got it and her food down her. She can't stand up. Still waiting for the vet to call back.

    Smokey... sorry to hear about scrambles. I’ve been extremely busy with company at the house.

    Did you try oregano in the water? A couple drops of the oil for the entire container. A friend of mine speaks highly of that for her chickens.

    B vitamin deficiency can cause paralysis. something you could look into .
    the poultry cell I posted will correct the problem if that's the cause.

    Smokey, here is hoping that Scrambles will soon make a full recovery. How is her gait when she walks? Does she juke & jive as she walks? If so, she is normal. As my wife would say, "you're the only one that thinks your funny". Get well soon Scrambles.

    If I put her down on her legs, she stays there a second or two, wobbly, then sits down. I spent $318.23 on her Monday. Antibiotic, something else, and special liquid food. I am not adding anything to what the vet gave me. Supposed to hear back like now from the vet...

    Scrambles is becoming a raving, screaming pain in the...and I'm still not sure she's going to live! But biting me is her newest pasttime and she feels good enough to try to "scramble" away from me now.

    Vet finally called. She has a massive infection. They don't know where. I know of no wound on her. Anyway, white blood cell count supposed to be 4,000-8,000 and it's over 39,000. Vet asked if she was still with us, answer is yes.

    So she's been on a powerful antibiotic since Monday pm and anti inflammatory and I just got back to the store with a jar of B50 vitamins, of which she gets 1/4 of one twice a day as she is also anemic.

    And she has another vet's appt next Tuesday. Send money.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    When I retired and came home, Mom had one cat - Leroy, and I had two - Bowie & Missy. All three were in their teens - old cats. They passed one after the other, and our household beneath this roof was a broken home. Leroy was 17 I think, Bowie & Missy were 15 and 16. This was a very broken house for a while - Mom just sat in her chair and cried.

    A gal at the local Farmer's Market tipped me off to 3 kittens - got all 3, walked in the door and opened the cage pointed at Mom. They were all over her.

    I am completely convinced those kittens absolutely lengthened Mom's life = She's still here at 94, and anytime she sits down she has a cat in her lap.

    Nice story Deepseeker. Including the chicken houses and not including food, I have spent over $1,000 on the four, now three chickens since 2014, one died suddenly when she was 2 and a half. When their houses start to deteriorate, I replace it. That's $600 of the cost. Chickens have to have a nice house. Scrambie did eat a blueberry. Vet suggested keeping her in the bathroom. I may just bring up to extra jumbo size cat carrier tomorrow from the basement. That would be a riot.

    Smokey, Granny had chickens - that chicken house is still standing - I'd just have to do some repairs/updates.

    In my heart, I can't kill a critter - not something in my future, very sensitive about that = except for self defense = anybody come up here with bad intentions best face the fact that I'm skill trained. Done my time shooting at people and ducking the return fire.

    Smokey, all I wish for in life now is complete peace.

    I'll still fight for that
