Hello everyone, wasn't planning on being on this thread intel I came across my barred rocks bum. She's one of our best hens great eggs and funny gal! Lately egg production has gone down just a little bit. Her eggs have always had a bump or ripple , today was way worse however hard to see in picture.
At first I thought she started molting intel I looked at her feathers. stuck to her bum a yellow orange color feces. I know not good! With further investigation I notice what I thought her molting was is her bum feathers being pulled out. I am imagine due to pain?! She got her annual deworming and mite/lice medication about two months ago. I did both two times so it was a total of 20 days and 2 doses on my entire flock! Here are a couple pictures she's not red yet. I tried to clean her up a little bit hurd a couple noises from her that it didn't feel so well. My rooster just mated her. she did not kick him off. Which worries me because I don't want him spreading whatever's going on with her to the rest of my flock everybody else is clean!
any information would be great! I did give her ivermax last night. She looks like the feathers are growing back a bit. Thanks in advance !!Edited by Angie16hearts - 3/8/15 at 5:43pm
