Hello all~ Our hens came to us this summer-- 3 Silkies about 14 months old and 3 Orpingtons, about 25 weeks old. I am not sure what is going on... This morning we found a nickel sized spot of thin red blood on the edge of the nesting box, and inside another nesting box about a dime sized streak of blood on an otherwise normal looking poop. The Silkies lay every other day, and production has been about the same or slightly less. Two of them have been what I thought was broody for about a week... but now I am worried someone is sick. I looked at their vents as best I could, and saw no evidence of blood. The Orpies don't lay yet... or if they have, only very rarely. They all seem fine, though would not tolerate me catching them for vent inspection. My girls eat outside most the day-- I do give them some scratch and other treats from the table and oyster shells. They have layer feed in the hen house. Suggestions??? Thanks so much-- I am worried about my girls!
