    My bantan chicken, a sebring? , may be dying...her crown and face are turning dark. All she does is lay around.. this is day two. A couple days ago, as a mentioned on another thread, my birds were chased by neighbor dog, which managed to get a few mouthful of feathers. I lost one chicken two days ago, angie. NOW julie, the bantan looks sick, her rose comb is pretty much gone and black...any ideas?? Help...

    Pix would help. Could the dog have actually injured the birds rather than just yanking a few feathers...

    Set up a photbucket account, or something like that, then email
    Your pictures to that, with your smart phone, I think it will work.

    I changed my profile picuture to my sick bannie, Juliet. I also was able to load another picture of her (a front view) to show how her comb is missing and her face is turning black. she isn't eating much and not drinking much. I put a warm towel on her. she appears strong, yet I don't know how to get her from laying around and get her to eat, and drink. I am deparate.. HELP and thank you. PS.. I read orientation to the site, (I'm a computer programmer, Heehee) and I am not able to attach a photo to this reply... lordy lordy [​IMG]
