    1 year old lavendar orpington died of unknown cause

    Pru is still separated and indoors. She’s been through a full round of antibiotics. There’s been some improvement. She doesn’t do the penguin walk as much as before. She’s still eating and drinking with normal poop. She’s alert but doesn’t get up and move around much. I have her on probiotic...

    1 year old lavendar orpington died of unknown cause

    Thanks Tonya. I did get the poultry dust and applied it to everyone in the flock. I have also ordered the spray and plan to clean the coop again this weekend. Any idea where I can get Valbazen?

    Help needed - Hen not standing much

    I'll try to get a picture of her legs and feet. I've given her a couple baths, cleaned the coop twice, put out fresh DE and still no improvement. I've checked her vent. It's clear of any greeter. I'm going to try a broad spectrum antibiotic next. Still at a loss here. 🤷‍♀️

    Help needed - Hen not standing much

    I have a 1 year old lavendar orpington doing the same thing. I've checked her and she is not egg bound. She walks very little, like a penguin. She is eating and drinking. No mites or lice. Her legs and feet look normal. She gets electrolytes in her water. Fresh water regularly and fresh food...
