    One of my Barred Rock hens can't walk. She was in the coop yard this morning, upright but won't walk. I picked her up and put her in a separate pen for today so the other chickens wouldn't pick on her. I just cleaned out her little pen and she is still not walking. She is bright-eyed, alert...

    RIR chicks with white feather caps?

    I'll post a pic tomorrow when it is lighter, but as my (about 4 wk old) RIR chicks feather out, three of them have significant white caps on their wings. I'm not sure what the proper terminology would be, but as where the shoulder would be. On one of the three, almost half the wing is white...
