    Her feet have been curled since the beginning (almost a month now), but before she wouldn’t move whatsoever so I didn’t notice it as much. I’ll clean up her feet and try to take better pictures. I’ve given her B12, but need to get B 2. Thank you so much for the help!

    I’m having some difficulty uncurling her feet and taking pictures. Is this alright?

    Hello everyone, I haven’t updated y’all in awhile because the holidays have been so hectic. Nel is rid of all signs of love (no lice or lice egg sightings). There is one problem though, she can’t walk. Her toes are all curled up and she can’t seem to incurl them. She hobbles around a little bit...

    We did have a few hens who had hard molts, but she isn't one of them. I will try your suggestions. Thank you!

    What I meant by directly was that it doesn't have me make a water solution with it, which @Eggcessive suggested, but apply the powder directly. Thank you all for your help!

    I bought this from my local TSC. Is it not strong enough because it only has .25% permethrin? The directions say to apply it directly to the bird.

    Sorry for responding so late. I do not think it's a reproductive issue as I have had two hens with it before, but I could be wrong. Her crop doesn't seem abnormal. She does eat and drink some and poops. I gave her another bath today and I think I might have found lice eggs on one feather shaft...

    I've been really busy all week and haven't been able to update y'all. Nel is practically the same. She eats when we hand feed her, drinks water on her own, and I have been giving her electrolytes. She isn't lethargic, but just sits. She still has no sense of balance and can't stand. I'm not sure...

    Definitely not broody, I did worry that my description may sound like it. Unfortunately a vet isn't an option in my area. We got her to eat something today which is good.

    Thank you for your response. No, she has been laying for awhile now. I'll definitely check the rest of the flock and keep you updated Nel.

    Hello everyone, One of my hens is acting very ill. Yesterday when I let them out she stayed in the coop, just sitting in the nest box. I brought her inside and checked her. Her comb and wattles are normal, there is no swelling or bloating anywhere, no heavy breathing or wheezing, but I think she...
