facial cyst.

I've been adopted by a flock of escaped game chickens. Very small, rural setting, zoned fo agri.in cent. Fl. came to song bird feeder, about 6 mos. They eat crkd.corn/seed mix, and steal stray cat's food. I give them fresh clean water daily. Problem is 2 roosters, 1 old I think, w/nasty cyst by beak. We lanced & cleaned it out as best we could, but some styff was hard. He also had thick saliva w/a lot of head shaking. I researched/googled & got som tylan 200. Gave 4 inject. Into cyst. Was better about 2 wks.would eat some seed but pigged on softened, dry catfood, as I think growth is pressing inside throat.he's kind of feisty, and he follows me everywhere, even coming to rest beside me in my screen room. He's headshaking w/ saliva again 3 wks later, cyst has shrunk to dried kno, but think throat is worse, swelling. Know catfood is bad, but refuses all else & doesn't really forage. I really have affection for this bird, but am afraid he's suffering, should I have him put down in your opinion?

What to do with chickens with leg problems?

Wild, escaped flock of game chickens, including 3 small, pin feathered young ones. In about 3 mos. have grown nicely,( free range, don't know where they roost at night) eating bugs, crkd. corn/song bird mix. (That's why they adopted me, coming to my song bird feeders.) Of the 3 birds, 1 shot up w/ legs 2 x the length of other 2. About a week ago, I noticed a bit of weakness in what I thought was 1 leg possibly getting injured. It has now gotten guickly worse to the point of floppy legs and can only "kneel" or lay on breast. I've put him in a small coop I got, so predators can't get him. He eats quite well a mash I made of scratch, crkd corn/wheat/seed, cornmeal, warm water. He stole a lot of catfood I put out for stray.I know too much protein can cause leg probs. I checked for breaks, but is ok. Thighs somewhat warm, gave tylan 200, 2 x, 1x each 48 hrs 2 more in each breast, no improvement so stopped. This is my 2nd fav.bird as when well is quite a character, and the only other friendly bird beside the rooster w/cyst. Again, would like your opinion on putting bird down. I can't stand to see it suffer, it doesn't look as if it'll get better. Thank you for your interest in helping.

black gamecock iris

I am container growing a black gamecock iris. I keep it very wet and the green foliage is beautiful and green but I cannot get it to bloom. It is in partial shade, could that be the problem? Is there any way to force it to bloom? I really don't have full sun anywhere in my small yard.
