hen hiding in coop, poop on vent

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I found one of my 1 year old hens sitting in the coop under the nesting boxes.  She didn't try to move when I touched her, which is unusual.  This morning, she walked around the coop, but I noticed she had wet poop around her vent.  Also, she is not laying.  Is she sick?  Should I remove her from her flock?

I would separate her in a warm, quiet, dim space... Like a dog crate in your garage.

 

It's possible she could have worms, but something is obviously not quite right.

 

Can you examine her to see if she's egg bound?

 

When was the last time you wormed your flock?

 

See anyone with bubbly eyes, sneezing, or lethargy?

and likewise his pack; and he that hath no sword,

let him sell his garment and buy one."
