    I have a hen that has been walking around with an eye closed and now she is making caughing noises. I have her seperated from the flock, but need to know what to do for her.

    Thanks

    have you checked to see if the hen has mites? what is the age? what are you feeding her? is her poop normal?

    I have not checked for mites, but here are some poop pics. It is very bright green. She has been eating laying pellets. Not sure on the age either, but I was told she was about a year to year and a half.
