    Does anyone let their chickens sleep outside?

    My coop is a coop/run combo. There is no enclosed coop. It has a roof and three sides and it’s a totally enclosed space with hardware cloth panels. The roosts are just sitting in the corner.

    Marek' s disease

    So sorry for your loss. Cleaning and keeping your current hens comfortable and stress free is never a waste of time!

    post sour crop/doughy crop, still thin, odd poo

    Do you have access to a scale? That way you would *know* her weight gain or loss. Sour crop can sometimes be more of a symptom of something else going on, and not just an individual issue. How old is she? Have you checked for parasites? When was the last time they were de wormed?
