This is an angry girl. They did a couple X-rays and confirmed that, yes, she is not digesting her food. They gave me some antibiotics and she has an appointment with an avian specialist on Monday morning. I may or may not keep that appointment depending on how she does in the next couple days. I'm going to treat her with some lactose-free kefir and hopefully that will answer the candida that is probably growing right now in her crop. I guess the antibiotic is in case there are other issues going on and this is like a secondary problem. It was a rough trip. She's not very happy with me. #mypetchicken #backyardchickens #bufforpington #sickchicken

My shoulder chicken of the day is Flavia. She’s a White Polish Hen. She was a little skittish at first but is becoming more calm and loving every day.

Yesterday's ebony egg, and two from today for a comparison on color 🦆
.
That lighter gray is what our particular Cayuga girl laid today! The 'bloom' fades sometimes gradually, sometimes all at once, depending on the frequency that they lay. Once they've laid eggs daily for about a week, the color is usually a very light & dusty, dirty gray-white.
.
The white is from one of the other ladies, likely a Khaki Campbell, to show the typical duck egg color.
.
.
What do you think- convinced on Cayugas for your flock? We do love our ladies around here!

It's  graduation day for the littles.  The integration into lucy's and Silkies coop has begun.  Hoping for a successful integration by end of October.  I usually wait until littles are 10 weeks but I used a different brooder and they have outgrown it. #chickintegration #mypetchicken #backyardchickens

When you realize your mom is so crazy, she's gonna take you to the ER no matter what you say. (I think she's having MAJOR digestive issues according to the clues and the advice and questions of the very kind and helpful #chickenpeople at Backyard Chickens Dot Com and there is an animal ER nearby with chicken people on staff today,  so.....goodbye new video card and anything else for Christmas! Which is a-okay because this is Queen Buffy!) #backyardchickens #bufforpington #sickchicken #mypetchicken #bluepearl

Never a dull moment with chickens. Lucy and Betty are acting like a couple of teenage boys! I separated them hoping to keep Betty stress free so she can grow new feathers. Now I’m rethinking that logic. Should I put them back in the same cage so they can establish their pecking order and this behavior stops? #🤔 #chickenquestions #backyardchickens #alwayslearning #mypetchicken

Number 11 and this week’s #fluffybuttfriday participant is my little fresh prince Coolio! We have 3 of these White Crested Black Polish (likely all boys, but jury is still out so I try to maintain gender neutrality), but only one greets me ON my feet, follows me around the yard, sits on my shoulders and talks incessantly at me. We also had about a week of special bonding time while she recovered from an injury in a crate on top of our storage freezer (earning her the name Coolio), and I’m convinced that she imprinted on us and loves us. I’m highlighting her today because I thought s/he was gone forever until about 30 minutes ago!! She was missing last night at bedtime and did not get locked in the coop. We have another bird who does this too, so we hoped that they were together in their secret sleeping spot. But then this morning at breakfast, s/he was still gone! I searched everywhere!  All other birds were present but her. So I’ve been convinced all day that she was picked up by a hawk! Over the years we’ve had a couple other birds disappear without a trace, so it seemed feasible. But then this afternoon when I gave them some scratch I noticed that all 3 of the white poufs were there!!!! What a joyful relief!! Where the heck was he?! I scared the crap out of him when I snatched him up and smothered him with cuddles and told him never to let me worry like that again. Idk if he got the message🤷🏻‍♀️ But I’m just happy to have my quirky buddy back in the yard💖💖💖

Looks like one of our Cayuga girls is back in action after a long summer break! ❤️
.
.
Cayuga ducks are known for laying eggs with a grey or near-black 'bloom', which is always particularly dark when they haven't laid for a while, very similar to chickens. However, this bloom doesn't wash off in water like with chicken eggs, but it will come off with scratching or other abrasions. Always a fun find in the duck house! 🦆

Soon the Minnesota winter will keep me and my girls inside most of the time. I get cranky. They get cranky. I try to spend as much time with them during the summer as I can. Winter gets eyeball-freezing cold sometimes. ( @nicnchicks )

Next up is our flock mother and resident badass, Sick Chick, a 5+ year old Welsummer who has seen it all and worked her way up the ranks of the pecking order by fighting beak and claw to get to the top. She has been living here longer than I have, but she hasn’t always been the boss. The story is that she was nearly pecked to death by her flock mates back when they were very small, and living in not ideal conditions. Once her condition was discovered, they brought her inside to nurse her back to health, but there wasn’t  much hope that she would survive. But just like all the best revenge stories, the experience toughened her up, she came back with a vengeance, and now she’s Queen of Coop! She still has bald spots and a twisted wing feather from where she was injured worst, and clearly she is both old and molting, so this is not her looking her best, but all things considered I think she looks damn good for an old ass hen (and she seems to think so too as she admires herself in the mirror 😂). She has a tough ole broad attitude, and does not take her role lightly- and she seems to be respected for it. Who’s the lady boss in your flock? :
