    She wasn’t feeling well so we separated her from the flock a few days ago, in an XL dog crate in a very low lit area of the garage with food and water with Corid etc. Today she seems really improved but her comb has turned a purple-ish tint on its edges? Is it not enough light or something else?? We don’t know whether to reintegrate her into the main flock or not. No one else is sick. Thanks in advance!!! ❤️

    I thought that but its been hot here and not been even getting under 60-65 degrees at the low during the night, so I don’t know how it could be frostbite? It’s driving me crazy! I can’t figure it out!!

    After some research we think she may have had a heart attack that didn’t kill her instantly and just couldn’t recover

    Oh no no
    Heart problem didn't happen like that chicken who have heart attack will die on.spot insec
    must be circulating problem
    Okay if u doubt I tell u a trick to check if she have heart problem

    Place ur ear near her chest in a very quite room and try to listen if she having any clicking sound near heart area

    If u suspect a clicking sound there must be a valve that not working nd will be a heart problem

    Otherwise must be a blood circulation problem
