    Yesterday I posted that I had a hen who was barely eating, lethargic, and her comb had flopped. By last night she was eating, moving around normally, and not too happy when I would pick her up. This morning she had already eaten all of her layer pellets and laid us and egg. [​IMG] Since she's still eating and laying can I hope she's starting to recover from whatever she had? [​IMG] I think it was a vitamin absorption issue, so I do plan to keep her in the house for a few more days to keep an eye on her. I'm also going to cook the egg she laid in the house and give it to her for breakfast.
