I'm in need of some hens. I'm trying to get rid if my roos at the moment.
Can anyone give me some suggestions for helping my sick chicken? She looks really pale and is staying on the roost all day. She will get down and go out if I make her but I don't think she's eating much.
with the wet weather, parasites or worms are a huge problem. If you have not wormed, you should for all the varieties as some you can't even see or tell in the poo. Depending on her age, but usually listless, depressed, not eating is due to infestations. Can't hurt to hit her with some Safeguard treatment to see? worms can infest within a couple of months, so if it has been that long since worming, I would with all this durn wet muggy weather perfect for HUGE parasite/worm problems in chickens.
