So yesterday I'm weeding the front yard and all of a sudden every last chicken starts SCREAMING, I look over and there flapping away in the cow water trough is one of my girl's prized chickens. I go running down there, the chickens are gathered around screaming, the bull and steer pastured in there are bemusedly staring at the flailing chicken in their water and the poor thing is standing in the trough with her beak barely poking out of the water.

I scooped her out and other than being extremely soggy and put out, she was fine.

Now on to the bigger question.... did she fall in or considering that's she's mean to every other chicken..... was she pushed???

If they pushed her in, would of they alerted you to her plight?

We have four roosters and they love ANY excuse to screech their heads off. They've figured out that if the lot of them put up a giant ruckus, I will come running and can generally be suckered into an extra few handfuls of Chicken Scratch.

We don't have spoiled chickens...

Anyway, my mother is devastated as they are absolutely are her babies. We have 3 left. If we brought some outside chickens in, does that give way for perhaps fighting? They seem a little lonely.
An old farmer told me to sneak them into the coop overnight. When they wake up in the morning with new chickens, thanks to their WONDERFUL memory, they just wake up thinking they had a **** good party the night before. Worked for us!

Alright folks, we have a problem. Two nights ago, six new chickens got mixed in with the flock. Two days later we are noticing what looks like feathers rooting and turning black from one chicken. I have no clue as to what it is. I am pretty sure its the pecking order being messed with, but my brothers say they noticed it long ago but thought it was dirt. Sooo I'm now confused. I have pictures, If ya'll could give your opinion that would be great! I don't really like these pictures, but they are all I have right now. I'm getting better ones.

P.S The chicks are doing great! I think my frizzle is a roo, though.

I think it looks like mites. No clue here on getting rid of them... I've only dealt with them once and it was on a severely injured chicken and she died from her injuries before I found anything that worked.

I just went out there and they were all preening, scratching themselves? I'm not sure. I can't see any thing that would scream mites or any sign of in I can't see any feces or anything like that. I really really hope its not that. We had a vet(horse vet) look at them and he said that it doesn't look like mites because the skin isn't broken. He said it looks like the chickens pecking.

Get some liquid Sevin and put it in one of those big outdoor sprayers, get the chickens out of the mite infested pen and spray the entire area and where they roost needs to be soaking wet with Sevin spray, also wash food and waterers and let the pen air out for a couple hrs and then let them back in. Also if they have scaly leg mites, dip their legs in cooking oil once a day for 2-3 days and then once a week until you see their legs healing. For mites on their vent, dust them lightly with Sevin dust.
