    My australorp hen is unsteady on her feet as of this morning
    Yesterday I noticed she had diorrhea stuck to her feathers on her bum and her comb was looking a lot paler and today she was sitting on her perch at about 10am and when I took her off I noticed her unsteadiness

    I am worried because my other australorp died a couple of weeks ago after showing the same symptoms
    I have isolated her from the flock but am not sure what to do with her otherwise

    Any ideas would be much appreciated

    I'm sorry to hear about your Australorps. I am having issues with my RIR. She cannot stand but a second or two. It doesn't look good. I will post how things go.
