This is posted from a different thread, but it is more suited to be here I think: This may be a dumb question, but I have this one NHR hen who I have noticed just today has started just hanging out all alone, and "sleeping" in the grass. When I saw her earlier this morning I actually thought she had died. She lets me come right up to her and stroke her which is not like her at all. I find my reds are not a tame as my leghorns. Anyone have any ideas?? She seems too young to be broody, and she looks healthy. I have seen her eat and drink today. Just a worried mama. Thanks Jess eta: I just went out to check on her, and she pooped while I was there and it was kind of clear white runniness. She has always been one of my smaller girls, especially next to my leghorns. eta: saturday, she had blood in her poop. Stopped at the grain store and picked up the antibiotic and filled all the waterers, and cleaned out the coop. Just checked in the coop and she is still not perching in her usual spot, but she is still with us. I also made sure I got some of the treated water into her earlier, for my own piece of mind. SUNDAY******* went out to let everyone out and now more blood in the clean coop. I believe it's from my guinea hen now. I am so sad. I went to the grain store, again, got new grain (layer pellets), and out some probiotics in with the food. Water has the soluble terramycin................ Guess now I just wait. Good thing is is that everyone seem so be eating well, and I have been watching my NHR drinking the med water.:| also put a call into the local vet who will help with poultry. The guys at the grains store said they can't believe all the people losing chickens this year. I am guess all the rain and humidity. This sucks!!!
