My polish hen is slipping away real fast. She seemed alright yesterday. She had been producing shelless egg in august and than suddenly began molting a real heavy molt. She is only 1 year old and this morning I found her on the floor inside of the coop. She was in a corner, motionless skrunch down and her head was dropped down. She seemed to have lost weight suddenly, even though I had seem her eat before. She is also the top hen in the pecking order. Everyone else in the coop is acting fine. Could this had been genetically? could shelless eggs at the age of 1 have been a clue?
We gave her so kyro syrup/water and a little probiotic with it. She took 1cc down and is inside the house. She is my favorite girl, but I do worry about the other flock too. it dropped last night into the forties and she is missing a lot of feathers.
