Sunny: Leghorn born March 9, 2010. Has 5 flock members. Weather: cold & rainy Habits: free-range all day in back yard; sleep in smallish coop at night. It does seem big enough, though. They are not crowded when they roost. Also, there is room for them to all fit on the floor, and move (but they just sleep in there, so they are off the floor. Sunny is the smallest, & the first thing I noticed was: she had lost more feathers than my other 5. I thought she was being picked on when they sleep in the coop (they free-range all day), but saw no sign of that when I got my flashlight & looked. She has been sleeping in a nest, where she used to roost. I put that down to being bullied away from the high-status sleeping spots. That has gone on about a week+. Her behavior has been normal, so I didn't do anything. She is impossible to catch (Leghorn). It has been rainy lately, & colder than we're used to here in California, but compared to midwest, etc, not bad (a few nights have gone down to freezing, & I put Xmas lights around the outside of the coop). Today, she was different. Not with the others, standing under a chair as if to stay dry (though I have a large covered area close to the coop). When I went to her, it was easy to pick her up, which confirmed that she was sick. First, I put her in a dog kennel with fresh shavings, her own food & water. I also put her in a small dry cardboard box to keep her body heat in. Her response has been to face towards the back of the box, so I can't give her drops of water. Now, I've brought her inside to a bedroom which is warm enough (I don't keep it real warm inside). I have been trying to give her warm water from a dropper, but sometimes I can't reach her beak (she's still facing the back of the box, & I don't want to manhandle her yet). Maybe I should, though. The other 5 are big fat & fluffy. They seem to get along well, just occasional squawking, minimal really. I just hope she makes it thru the night, then I will check her skin & stool (hopefully not on my rug I have gotten a lot of comfort reading about others' sick hens; it is very painful to think of losing one, or even to see one not feeling well.
