5 Most Common Chicken Health Problems Backyard …

Just Now

1. It mite be lice. The most common health problem a chicken keeper will face is a pesky visit from poultry parasites. Chicken mites and lice can affect your chickens in different ways depending on the parasite type, the level of infestation and the health of your chicken flock.
2. Wiggle it, just a little bit. The second most common chook health problem we encounter is worms. Parasitic poultry worms are fairly common and easy to prevent and treat, but they are wily little buggers and can show up in hens even if you do everything right.
3. Breathe easy, bird. “My chicken is making a weird noise when they breathe” is the 3rd most common problem keepers approach us with. Respiratory issues can stem from a few different illnesses so if your chicken is wheezing or having trouble breathing it can be hard to determine what the underlying issue may be.
4. … Diarrhoea. Chook poop is a fascinating subject. Gross, yes, but a hen’s droppings can tell a keeper a lot about a chicken’s health. When your fair feathered flock is suffering from the runs it can be hard to decipher what the hen health issue might be.
5. A sour taste in their beak. The fifth most common hen health issue we are asked about is sour crop. The chicken digestive tract is an intriguingly complex system that has very little resemblance to our own.

5 Common Chicken Health Problems & How to Treat Them …

4 hours ago

1. Egg Laying Issues. Health issues related to egg laying are some of the most common health problems among chickens. However, it can be difficult to identify egg laying issues without paying close attention to the chickens’ behavior.
2. Cuts or Peck Marks. It’s very likely that, at some point in their lives, backyard chickens will suffer from cuts and peck marks done by other flock members.
3. Foot Injuries. Foot injuries are some of the less-serious health problems in chickens but may be difficult to treat. However, there are still a variety of ways to treat foot injuries in chickens that will help them get back on their feet (literally) as soon as possible.
4. Diseases. There are many categories of diseases that backyard chickens may contract. The severity of these diseases as well as their treatments vary depending on what type of disease is contracted.
5. Pasty Vent. Pasty vent is a condition that usually only affects baby chicks. This health problem can become life-threatening if it isn’t detected quickly.

10 most common diseases in backyard chickens …

2 hours ago

1. Fowl Pox: In layman’s language this disease can be referred to chickenpox, but is way different from the ones which affect humans. It’s a viral and contagious disease which can spread directly or by mosquito – the basic chicken disease symptoms are the visibility of warty bumps near the legs; also, you may see the formation of lesions in the mouth area.
2. Infectious Bronchitis: This is one of the chicken illnesses which are really painful and dangerous – it not only destroys the esophagus (respiratory pipe) but also spreads amongst the healthy fellows.
3. External Parasites: It may include even the simplest parasite which you may not even pay attention too – for example, fleas have a real enemy of backyard birds as well as other pets.
4. Internal Parasites: Internal parasites usually refer to worms inside the body – they are of no harm usually, but in many cases they turn into bad shape.
5. Marek's disease: It remains the most common yet contagious disease because it affects birds intensely – it’s fatal and still untreated. Usually it affects the younger chickens because of their weak immune systems – basically, the white blood cells begin to destroy and this leads to cancer and other fatal diseases.
6. Nutritional deficiencies: Feed for backyard chicken must be healthy and full of nutritional value – if you fail to provide them with what their need is, they would suffer from various diseases and issues.
7. Reproductive Problems: Many times chickens are not able to produce eggs according to their capacity because of reproductive problems; it includes egg binding – the condition in which birds are unable to pass out eggs.
8. Exotic Diseases: This chicken disease refers to severe flu, avian influenza and respiratory track diseases – this causes severe depression and irritation in the flocks – it further makes the system complicated by slowing down egg production and collapse of the nervous system.
9. Frostbite: If you are living in colder region, you must be aware of this annoying chicken disease. Cold weather chicken breeds tend to remain protected from this because of their tendency to fight against the temperature – however, conventional types suffer from frostbite.
10. Cannibalism: Many times chickens tend to put them into trouble – for example, they would go around and intentionally put their toe on the wounds of other birds – this is how the infection develops.

10 Common Chicken Health Problems And Solutions Types …

9 hours ago

1. Molting. Maybe one of the most common problems with every chicken, molting has been known to disturb every chicken keeper’s day. However, molting is normal – after a year or so of laying eggs every hen`s immune system gets weak and that is why this occurs.
2. Eye Problems. Eye problems with my chickens were the thing that surprised me the most about the common health problems with my chickens. They occur more often than you can imagine, due to the high chances of dust sparks or some small flying object finding their way into your chicken`s eyes.
3. Mites. This is one of the health problems that you can prevent easier than that you can cure. Mites don’t have a point of origin and if they appear once – it may take them a year or more to occur again.
4. Cannibalism. Unfortunately, cannibalism can occur in your flock, and trust me it is not a good sight but a very, very disturbing one. Feeding chicken meat to your chickens, chickens over-bullying each other, not feeding your chickens regularly, or if your chickens don’t get their exercise – all of these can lead to cannibalism.
5. Egg Abnormalities. Misshaped eggs are the problem that almost every chicken keeper has but does not want to talk about it. It is a very disturbing feeling when you get a misshaped, soft egg in your hand it is like your hen can feel your disappointment.
6. Hurt Legs. Although it is highly recommended that you let your chickens run as much as possible, it is also highly recommended that you check up on their legs and feet every few days.
7. Prolapse. Prolapse is the most disgusting health problem on this list next to cannibalism. Prolapse can happen before the process of molting or when the hen gets older.
8. Cramps. Cramps can be often mistaken for hurt legs and novice chicken keepers tend to overreact to this problem. If there is no wound, when you stretch the legs of your chicken if the chicken does not respond with a sound of great agony ( you`ll know it when you hear it ) it means that the leg is broken.
9. Feather Loss. Feather loss is a very common issue with any flock. There are many reasons for feather loss in chickens such as bullying, vent pecking, lack of protein, etc.
10. Immune System Failure. Even a small failure of the immune system of your chickens can cause even the worst illnesses. Every chicken keeper has lost a chicken or more due their immune system failing.

9 hours agoHealth issues can also arise in adults. My interest in heritage breeds involves having both sexes survive and perform well for several years. Putting effectively unlimited amounts of nutrient dense commercial feed is great for maximal egg production; but if chickens are anything like humans, mice, rats and dogs; then prolonged operating with all that extra weight on is likely to shorten lifespan.
