    We have (4) six month old hens and we live in Southwest Florida. Yesterday, towards the end of the day, Goldie (our sweet Easter Egger) started closing her eyes while she was out with the other girls running around the yard. She would be fine one minute and then look like she was dozing off...

    Hi, we have three hens and bought a further three hens on Monday. I’ve got the two groups separated. The market was a very stressful place for an animal. One of the hens, a Sussex, doesn’t seem to be as active as the others. She’s 4 to 6 months old. She closes her eyes a lot and keeps shaking...

    Swollen Eyelids

    I have a small flock of 5 hens and my five year-old girl, Pea, has developed slightly swollen eyelids. She has her eyes closed much of the time, although when she opens them, her eyes are clear and she can peck up tiny insects, so there seems to be nothing wrong with her vision. I bathed her...
