My hen is not well
- Veggie Chick
Any advice would be gratefully received. This morning when i let my hens out only 3 appeared. I looked in the house and the fourth one could not walk, her feet seemed to have turned in on themselves, her tail is down and she looks very sad. Does any body have any idea whats wrong with her.
Welcome to BYC!! We need more information.. How old is your hen? Any respiratory symptoms? (bubbly eyes, wheezing, puffy eyes, sneezing, coughing). Will she eat or drink? How is her poop? Has she still been laying eggs? Any mites or lice? Is she standing on her feet or sitting?
When you say "turned in on themselves" do you mean that her feet have turned like turned your feet to have them face toe to toe inward instead of straight ahead like normal, or have her toes curled up like a closed claw instead of flat and spread out. kind of like a fist as opposed to an open hand? just trying to picture what you mean first
