Cutie-Pie chokes

Poor Cutie-Pie, she just wants to hatch babies
but Bluestar is sitting on her!

A few days ago we went to the chicken
yard and found Cutie-Pie
jerking and twisting her head.
We became very worried and called a
vet who specializes in birds (she lives
a few hundred miles away so there
was no way we were going to take her
in) 'no sorry, she won't be in
until tomorrow' we gave Cutie-Pie
water and food. Appointment
canceled, Cutie-Pie is fine.
The vet called anyway and
was very excited to hear that we
had seen her Naked Neck Turken
on the cover of Backyard Poultry
Moral: If your chicken is
jerking and twisting her head
around, give her water before
you start panicking!

  1. This was obviously before we knew Cutie-Pie had an impacted crop!


Thank you for commenting! I love getting replies!

If you have a chicken question, I highly recommend that you visit There are some brilliant people there, and they can almost certainly answer your questions better than I can.
