    This is my first year with chickens and they. Have been doing well until now. I have 3 buff orp and 3 black australorps. I switched from dumor layer to layena. I have one black australorp that for the second time ( i think its the same gal) has become very pale and has low enerfy and eating very little. The first time it happened i gave her electrolytes and she felt better by evening, but for 3 days after she was very pale but acting fine. This morning a two weeks later she is pale and quiet again. The first time i did give them some freshly milled cracked corn as a treat and i recently have started the corn treat, store bought. Is it the corn, something else, or the layena may not be up to par? No one else is affected,

    Inspect your birds for lice/mites, worm your birds with valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer or safeguard liquid goat wormer.

    Dawg is likely right on. I wanted to mention though that more than one person has noticed something odd about layena. Mine would rather starve to death than eat it. Literally. I don't know if it just sat too long or what, but every time I've tried that brand I had bad luck. It was also a wierd yellowish color. Smelled ok though.
