Hi All! My 2 year old Red Star hen was once a wonderful layer. At about 6 months old she was attacked by a racoon or dog, but recovered quickly and laid very well afterward. Around last fall she went into what must have been her first molt and it was quite heavy. She has not laid since. She grew back her feathers, but then lost a bunch around the bottom of her breast and almost to her vent. Until a few days ago her demeanor was about normal, although we noticed that she didn't care much for treats or even bugs, just regular feed pellets. A few days ago we noticed the following: 1. Her legs seem a little splayed 2. Her comb ever so slightly darker than before 3. Comb ever so slightly droopy, I'm talking hardly noticeable unless you look very carefully. It's about as droopy as our other Red Star hen's has always been, but this one's has always been very straight. 4. She has been sitting more than usual during the day. 5. We even saw her closing her eyes while sitting down... but then when i opened the door to their tractor she perked right up again as normal. 6. Poop seems fine, appetite (at least for pellets!) seems fine, no thirstier than normal. Weather is 75-80º F lately. 7. We *have* noticed that we just developed a rat problem (!) - any connection? Anyway, I'm wondering if I'm seeing the early signs of this hen getting very sick, if there's anything I can do about it, and why she hasn't laid since her molt last fall. Any ideas?
