    Hi all,

    this is my first post and i cant wait to be looking properly on this sight for a more cheery topic!

    i have 4 chickens, 1 ex battery who seems to have settled in nicely to the world of free range living.

    i also have 3 chickens who we were given as chicks after the lorry taking them to a battery crashed! lucky break!

    however one of these is looking very under the weather. her comb is very pale (shes a white chicken anyway so looks like a ghost!) and she has taken to sitting a lot and closing her eyes which when open look very dull.

    she still runs about if food is shaken or i try to pick her up to much but also will not go to sleep in the coop she settles down under the same bush every evening.

    she also is moulting at the moment so all in all shes not looking her best.

    does anyone know what could be wrong with her? starting to get worried about her!

    there coop is often treated for mites and i checked her last night and couldnt see any activity!

    thank you all for your help!
