    Our five month old top had chicken was laying on his side against the wall and was unable to get up. My wife picked it up and took it out of the cage and set it up right where it stood momentarily and then lay back down. She gave it a few small pieces of watermelon and it seemed to perk up, it actually picked up the watermelon and carried it off however while walking its wings were very droopy. We feed them scratch and a few scraps here and there. Any ideas? Everything was fine yesterday

    We got 12 chickens about three weeks ago five silkies and seven tophats, I cannot tell if this is a rooster or a hen. No one has started laying eggs yet. We allow them to free range for several hours a day
