"I hope she's not egg bound.  I've had 2 hens have this problem and neither has survived more than 2 days.  I even tried breaking the egg and gently removing the pieces but this is just too traumatizing I think.  Someone one…"

"Thought I'd share my method for the tea.  Brew the sage leaves.  Then I put the garlic through a press and then use the mortar and pestle to really smash the little pieces.  I add it to the strained tea and finally add some…"

"My cure-all is sage tea with garlic and honey.  This has brought back droopy looking chix to normal.  I don't know what their issue was but this has worked several times.  I really have no clue what's up with your hen but I…"

"So sorry. It's heartbreaking to have them die. I'd get Juliette de Barclay Levy's book on animal livestock. She has a chapter on chix care and it's been helpful to me. Good luck."

"My only other suggestion would be to see if some of the chicken people here in Maine--there are chicken clubs around. Maybe you already know of them. Maybe some one has experienced this before. Sorry."

Deborah Gideon commented on Jon Berry's group Chicken Talk
"PS I have a chicken that I rescued from the side of the road and I believe she was dumped there because she has a problem laying fully formed eggs. I really don't care as she is beautiful and a sweet thing, but then again I'm a softie. But…"

"Hi Bethany. I don't know what going on but how about posting on the Back Yard Chicken forum and see if anyone has any ideas. If the oyster shell is not doing it, I haven't a clue unless you have one chicken that has a problem. I think the…"

"Jon, the latest copy of Mother Earth News has an article about recommended breeds for eggs and meat. Also the cooperative extension might be a resource too. I've called them before when looking for chickens. And one other thing. There is a…"

Deborah Gideon commented on Jon Berry's group Chicken Talk
"You could make a strong tea of sage and then squeeze the garlic in. I used this for my chickens when I thought something was going on. I used my pestle to grind the garlic further, adding the tea as I went along to make a sort of slurry and gave…"

Deborah Gideon commented on Meg Wolff's blog post No Title
"I'm always looking for good tempeh recipes. My husband doesn't really like the taste of it, but I know how nutritious it is and one of the best sources of soy protein. I pan fry it so it's crispy after I marinate it and tried other…"

"Sorry it took me so long to respond to your friend request. I don't go on this site often. Mostly for chicken talk! Since I've been here last though, it looks like it's really grown."
