so, I have a barred rock hen that I got with two others that have a rir roo. the crew is from a hatchery (spring hardware store acquisition) and turned six months old this week. they lay about average and have been a joy to learn and grow with. we've expanded to buff's and jerseys and are in deep now wink.png
this particular hen I'm writing about has been squatting regularly for about a week, struggles to keep up foraging with her peers and is no longer laying in the nesting boxes. finding eggs on the ground in their coop tractor. yesterday she appeared to have more labored breathing and our peking ducks have begun to bully her sad.png and the bullying is bad, she just gives up and the roo tries to defend, two against one though.
what do y'all think? any help is appreciated!
