I had a Brahma Hen pass away yesterday. Last nite I noticed another hen having trouble walking & observed it eating while laying. I've tried reading up on diseases/illnesses. There's too many that sound like it.
So I thought I'd post here in hopes that someone may have encountered the same issue.
We have a flock of 30 Chickens, they're let out during the day & have plenty of grass to eat. My dad observed her today & said that it's almost like it's weight is too heavy for it's body.
We're feeding Grits for a treat, we have egg shells out, they're not eating pellets, its not ground, they're like little beeds of grain.
Could this be a vitamin deficency?
