    I have a 5+ yr old hen. She was blind when we got her and has a foot that looked like it had broke and never got set in place probably and healed wrong. Woke up this morning to find her unable to walk. I have brought her inside so I can give her food and water. Thought maybe she was just really cold. It's been almost two hours. She can't keep her balance, even when trying to sleep. When she tries to walk she falls all over the place, and then just lands on her side. I am having to pick her up and set her up right. Anyone have any suggestions?

  • African Grey broke her wing and there’s blood?

    I have a 2 year old African grey who likes to jump off the top of her cage. I’m not sure why, but recently she fell on her wing and blood splattered everywhere.

  • I found a dead hawk on my lawn-no obvious reasons for death--no electric wires above it-no surface that it could have smacked into?

    Best answer: another hawk killed it, there is tremendous competition for food sources (wild birds, squirrels) if you or neighbor uses bird feeders this is attracting predator birds (looking for wildlife to eat)....plus hawks are nesting now, theres need for more kills, it IS a jungle out there,.....do not use feeders!

  • A Robin got caught in a mouse trap, his leg is injured what can I do to help?

    My dad left it out, he had it under a sort of half pipe (to stop the dogs from getting at it originally) but I'm guessing from the wind it blew off.

    My dad left it out, he had it under a sort of half pipe (to stop the dogs from getting at it originally) but I'm guessing from the wind it blew off. This morning we found a robin trapped in it, the second my dad lifted the bar the robin flew off. Tonight when he came home it was sitting on our doorstep. It's leg is quite badly broken, it looks to be broken in two places. Where we're from there are no bird sanctuaries, we rang the vet and he said realistically he would have no choice but to put it down if we brought it to him. Can we nurse it back to help? Right now it's in a boot box (big shoe box) with a plastic grid over the top, some bird seed inside and straw etc.. My dad feels bad and he's thinking of getting a bird cage, to keep it in if it's not able to survive on it's own, or at least until a point in time it can. We have 2 dogs which have caught birds in the past so we know if the bird is in our back garden the dogs could get at it.. Any advice?

  • Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my budgie?

    Best answer: Generally once a bird is ill it dies quickly without treatment.
    Your bird is very ill.
    It needs to see a vet urgently to see if treatment is possible or to be humanely euthanized

I am getting a handy man guy to build one but scared he might be expensive too. I am getting 6 chickens and no rooster, I want a big enough run and I want it to be protected from every predator , I will try and free range them but scared they will go every where since I do not have a fenced in yard

  • Hamster or budgie as pet?

    Best answer: I had a hamster for two years in college and it was great fun. She really did like being handled...she would sit on my shoulder and give my ear little love nibbles.

    Best answer: I had a hamster for two years in college and it was great fun. She really did like being handled...she would sit on my shoulder and give my ear little love nibbles. I used to put her in one of those round clear exercise ball things and she would chase my cat around the apartment. And it was fun to feed her human food leftovers and see what she liked and didn't.

    Nocturnal means awake at night, not when you come home from school. Mine would run on her wheel for hours when I was trying to sleep. You get used to it, but light sleepers may find it annoying.

    You have to thoroughly clean the cage regularly if you don't want it to stink like piss. My hamster lived in a big glass aquarium and once a week I would completely empty it, throw out all the bedding, wash the glass with soap and water, let it dry, then give her new bedding and new stuff to chew up like cardboard, toilet paper tubes, etc.

    She was cute and fun but I never had the urge to have another one after she died. The cage cleaning was time consuming for a pet that can only give you "so much". Taking care of a cat litter box is easier IMO.

    I used to regularly babysit a friend's cockatiel which was fun too. But dang...birds are messy. I don't mean the poop per se, I mean the floating feathers and the spitting of the food everywhere. Never had the urge to own my own bird.
