Emergency

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I my freesian hen is almost one year old and I found her standing in her Hut looking a bit floppy and being sick also her cone has really flopped!
Update; just had an egg of her and its like there is no shell on it or is it soft shell, could this be a calcium deficiency???
Any ideas suggestions would be appreciated, thanks x

Hens lay weird eggs every now and again. If you see this happening a lot, yes you should amp up her calcium. All layers should be fed a calcium supplement as a matter of course (oyster shell free choice is what most people use) 

I looked up pics of Friesian hens and it appears as though the comb flopping over is common https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CAcQjRxqFQoTCICowL_dpMgCFYTQgAodT-gDKA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.omlet.co.uk%2Fbreeds%2Fchickens%2Ffriesian&psig=AFQjCNGRqUP0y1xY4KPI_AWdD8nAc-uJlA&ust=1443907699395059

 

Is your hen showing any other signs of disease?
