    My hen is two years old and was fine earlier today. But she was collapsed on the ground this evening after feeding on wet corn. (We recently had a flood.) She can't stand or hold her head up. And she, at times, rolls her eyes up in her head and moves her head around in a full circle while stretching her legs and body. It resembles a seizure. What could be wrong with her?

    She might be high from Corn-mash?? Was the corn molded?

    I think it's quite possible that it was molded. My parents feed them so I don't know how long the corn had been there. She just died a few minutes ago.

    I am Sorry!! Might not have nothing to do with the corn, but then again it might??? If the corn is molded or smells bad---I would not use it.
