    Hi there,

    I hope someone can give us some advice.

    This morning when we went to let out the hens, one hen was on her back, eyes closed, hardly breathing and floppy.

    We brought her in the house for a few hours with no improvement.

    We eventually placed her back in the shed to wait for the inevitable to happen because we were convinced that she was on her way out.

    However to our amazement, a few hours later she was running around the garden with the other hens???!!!!

    Any one have any idea what is / was wrong with our hen? She has always had runny eyes and a slight breathing problem.
