Hi everyone. One of my hens doesn't seem like herself lately. The first thing I noticed was that sometimes she doesn't go back in the coop at night with the others and we have to pick her up and put her in there. Also, she doesn't seem as lively as the others. Yesterday she was sitting down briefly. I am home during the day, so I check on them all the time She seems to eat and drink fine and she feels strong and healthy when I pick her up, though she protests less than the others. She walks around the run, pecking at crumbles, etc. This has been going on for a week, and several times I went out to pick her up and check her for problems and can find nothing wrong. She is only 5 months old and is not laying yet, so I don't think it would be an egg problem, though I felt her vent to see if maybe this was going to be her first time laying and she was having trouble, and I don't feel anything unusual. I checked for lice and mites and don't see any, though I've never seen lice or mites before, so maybe I just can't see them? The other two chickens are fine though. I cleaned out the coop today and dusted with mite powder, just in case. While I was out there, I noticed that even though she was standing, she kept falling asleep. Any ideas? I am very discouraged because since we got the six chicks in August I have lost two already (one to a mysterious paralysis, another to problems related to an impacted crop) and have to give a third away because it turned out to be a rooster. I want to hold on to the last three I have! Also, I treated them all with Wazine and Corid during the time the others were sick, just in case. One more thing -- most of her feathers look nice and full and shiny, but her tail feathers are tatty and almost nonexistent. I thought she was keeping her tail down, but maybe it looks that way because of her sparse tail feathers. You can't see skin or anything, they're just not long or full. Hope someone can help!
