    just to clarify-under "anything which may have contributed?" I meant I have introduced no new birds-this hen is not new-she is just the only one showing symptoms.

    Thank you so very much! Weather has been beastly here-hit while this hen was moulting-maybe her resistance was down-am going to treat everyone-high hopes as I have read lots of good reports about good responses to Tylan on this site. Thank you so very much.
