Poultry naive!
Please help us Dr Harry. My family have just moved onto a 5 acre property with an empty chook pen...until today. We rescued 3 chooks dumped by the side of the road a few kilometres from our house, and I have NO idea where to begin with their care, aside from seed and water. Are they hens or roosters? What breed are they? How do I get the flea like bugs off their heads? Why have they lost feathers on their back? Can they eat any vege scraps? How do I protect them from predators? What is the safest way to clean the pen? The list goes on....
Aside from Google, you're my only hope;)
Thanking you in advance. The Utgard's x

HELP! My 8 year old Husky has started yelping andscratching at the gates to the point she is bleeding and timber is coming off the fence. If she comes inside she will not go out unless I get her lead to take her out and she howls at me. She has never done this and I'm not sure why it has started but she is worrying me. She has anxiety for unknown reasons. Ruby is doing this whether I'm home or not.
Any help or feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you ??

Hi dr harry I really need some advise, I have a 18 week old cocker spaniel puppy, when I leave the house for work and shopping etc, he crys all day long. I've tried giving him treats before I leave and new toys and a shirt of mine. He has a crate that he sleeps in at night but doesn't like it when no one is home. I've even made the area bigger and put a pen around it and still no luck. Would really like some advise. Please

Hi Dr Harry. I have recently rescued a 5 year old red heeler who goes walk about every time I go to work. Fortunately to date Ive had good neighbours who have let me know and taken him home. I think Ive boarded up every possible escape route and have high fences - don't know exactly why he does it and would appreciate any tips you might have. Thanks in advance Michael

Dear Dr. Harry,
I have a problem with my beautiful ragdoll cat (Ari) who I adopted from the RSPCA. Unfortunately earlier this year she was hit by a car receiving severe facial and a possible head injury which resulted in her becoming totally blind. For many weeks after the accident she did not move about much and I had to feed her through a tube inserted into her neck. During that time her eyes were sown shut with buttons.
Now that she has recovered, she is able to get about my house without trouble. However, more recently she has shown a tendency to walk in circles and meow quite frequently. I do not understand why she is behaving this way and it distresses me to see her doing this. I would be very grateful if you can provide me with some advice on what I can do.
Yours Sincerely

Dr Harry, I desperately need help with my Red Collared Lorikeet "MAX". he has a Jekyl and Hyde character. If i have bare hands he attacks with vengence. If I wear my Bee Gloves he is OK. I like him flying about now and again, but the attacks are savage. Trie all sorts of ways to stop him even let him chew me with out a reaction to him, painful and he does not stop. HELP
