Hens comb ripped halfway off!! HELP - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Howdy!

It sounds like you are doing everything right so far. I think that it is pretty likely that your hen was wounded in a hen-fight or maybe just got bullied. Her eye might have been pecked once, enough to keep it closed but not enough to hurt it. Or it could be from the stress. She may be fluffed because of the instinct on the time of year, or possibly because of stress. I am not so sure about it...

Hope this helps you a bit!

I am sorry to hear what happened to your bird. Was it because of the comb that she died? She survived for 3 weeks after that injury so she can be remembered as a tough little bird. I am so sorry about your loss. She will be happy in chicken heaven!

I am again sorry and I hope that you can find a way to get on without her.
