I am hoping somone out there in "Chicken Land" can help me. One of my Golden Laced Wyandottes died today! I am very sad about this, and also very concerned as I have 5 other hens. I noticed this morning that this hen was drooping in the run, just laying there with her tail tucked. Her comb and wattles were EXTREMELY pale, like a pale peach/orange color. I ran to the local feed store to ask for help and to hopefully get some medicine for her. They gave me VetRx, but basically told me that she would likely die. When I got back, she had died already.
I am wonderintg if anyone else has had any hens with this type of condition. It has been cold here, with a Nor'easter hitting us last Friday. The run is covered in plastic, so no wetness or snow got to them.
Can anyone help?
