Sick hen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a yearling hen, hasn't laid for about a week, losing weight, not moving much, cone is almost purple. It appears to be maybe infectious bronchitis or Maren's disease???

 

I have 5 hens, 1 rooster who free range almost every day for 5-12 hours. Large coop ( converted barn stall fully enclosed) with a 10' x 20' run. Let them out of run for free ranging.

All other hens and rooster are fine. also have a brooder with 8 chicks in the same barn but not in close contact.

 

any suggestions would be really helpful! I do clean shavings out of coop every 3-4 weeks. Getting ready to disinfect with vinegar and H. peroxide.

You need to post this in the Emergency/Disease section.

1Peter 5:2 Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.
