First off, I have a pretty diverse flock and have no zero issues for the 8 months I've had them. (I thought that was a little too "lucky)
Tuesday all the birds spent the day free ranging and everyone made it in for the night with no problems. The next morning my sizzle pullet was very lethargic and would fall over when she tried to walk. I picked her up and noticed she has lost tons on weight (you can't tell by looking at her since she's so fluffy) I have her quarantined, and she doesn't seem to be eating or drinking anything
Possible problem #2
My two partridge silkies have been acting broody on and off. I've never had a broody hen but I keep getting excited when they act broody. Yesterday they both sat on eggs and didn't move the entire day and one would peck and make a chatter I've never heard before so I thought "this is it!" And gave them private food and water to do their thing.
This morning one left the nest and is off free ranging and the other moved off her eggs into another box . I felt her and her crop is SO impacted .. Is that sometimes something that comes with broodiness? Or more likely she has a much bigger problem?
