Hello all, hopefully this post is not too late.
I have one of my hens that is ill. At first I thought she went broody but yesterday I realized different. Last night we found that she was covered in mites so I thought that could be it but today she has gotten much worse so I assume I can rule out the mites.
She is a 9 1/2 month old New Hampshire. We live in Minnesota and the coop is not heated at this time.( I run a heat lamp to take the chill off when its sub zero temperatures) The temperature has been unseasonably warm this last month.10-35 deg f. They have a covered and plastic run for the cold days( around 0deg f) and on the warmer days they have a fenced in area outside.
I feed them regular, non medicated, layer feed with scratch grain as a treat when outside the run.
They have not been wormed and show no signs at this time. I am treating for mites today.
One poo of hers I saw was very watery. What wasn't water was a light yellow color.
I contacted the vet in town but he does not do chickens.
here is a video of her.
Thanks in advance.
