I purchased a baby chick for one of my hens when she went broody in the spring.  It was supposed to be a pullet, but turned out to be a rooster.  I'm not allowed roosters in my areas, so the fella…Continue

"OK, thanks!  You can also sell roos to The Stock Shop.  If they have room, they will buy roosters for $4.  You just have to call them first to make sure they have a cage available. "

"Thank you Allison, I ended up returning him to the pet store where I purchased him.  Apparently they sell them to farmers for $6.  He might still be there as we just dropped him off last Friday -- Pratts Pet Store on west Glendale.  "

"Hello, this post is a little older, but I haven't been on here in a while.  Do you still have your roo?  If you live close enough, I might be interested in him.  I have 3 welsummer hens that are getting older and I would like to…"

Roo Needs Home

I purchased a baby chick for one of my hens when she went broody in the spring.  It was supposed to be a pullet, but turned out to be a rooster.  I'm not allowed roosters in my areas, so the fella needs a new home.  He is a 3.5 month old Wellsummer.  If you are interested please reply to my post and I'll send you my email address.  See More

"I've never heard about the papaya juice. Is this related to enzymes or something?"

Sue Wefel replied to Lora Villasenor's discussion Slow/Blocked Crop (Chicken)
"I have read about using pure papaya juice with baby parrots that have slow crops, this might be something to try. Here is a link http://www.ehow.com/how_4471872_treat-slow-crop.html. It would certainly be worth a try and certainly won't hurt as…"

"I'm sorry that you are having this problem. I don't know the answer to your tube feeding dilemma. With crop impaction some people will try feeding oil. I've seen a lot of recommendations for mineral oil, though I don't know why…"

Slow/Blocked Crop (Chicken)

I have a 1 year old black sexlink that is having some crop issues.  I took her to the vet and have been tube feeding her and giving her two metoclopramide shots per day.  After a week of tube feeding and shots I would say her crop is about 1/2 the size it was before.  The next step at the vet would be surgery to empty the crop ($450) which isn't an option for me.  She is pooping and otherwise behaving pretty normal.  I have her separated from the other hens during the day so she doesn't forage…See More
