    Had a bad day on the farm...lost a 4 week old for no apparent reason then 2 of our older girls got into the dog pen....one did not make it.
    The other "seems" to be fine however there is leakage of blood out her vent and misc. fluid...just seeping a bit not pouring out.
    Her feathers were pulled from that area but not sure if she will now suffer blockage issues or if she has internal damage.
    Hoping she makes it through the night--as I said she was walking around and eating and drinking fine.
    Fingers crossed...tough day....

    Sorry for your miserable day, and hope the hen survives.
