She was recently treated for worms and she’s currently recovering in a cage by herself as she was getting pecked by the other hens.
having trouble walking but she seems to be gaining strength
She was and a couple other hens were broody about 1 week ago. I put them all in separate broody busters and the other hens integrated back into their flock without issue. (She’s part of another smaller flock.She was walking a bit off balance and she had also lost weight.) When she was put out, she was immediately pecked by one of the other hens. I had my caretaker put her back in the broody buster and I took her out when I got home. She was placed in another area where she could see her “flock mates”, but was isolated from them. That’s when I noticed the growth and the scab. So that’s been 5 days now. I discovered the worms on Saturday and worked her Sunday morning with Valbezene. The scab doesn’t appear to be weeping but I’ll check again in the morning. I will also look closely to see if there’s an embedded tick at that time.
