    I know it for a fact my baby hen is sick I'm not sure why but I know she had a runny nose and she is sleeping a lot which I assumed was normal cuz she was baby but I didn't think too much of it. She seems to be eating and drinking but she's very calm compared to the other one. I just went to pick her up and she started drooling like a lot of drool for her size was pouring out of her mouth no real other signs other than she was limping but I think that was the bigger hen when she broke into the coop so I think she hurt her a little bit but she has seemed a little weaker as far as like when I pick her up and put her down she will stumble a little bit but I kind of assumed that was just me putting her down too quickly she couldn't get her balance but after she started drooling I was worrying again. She keeps wiping her beak on basically anything as if she's trying to get something off which I noticed my other hand who had passed was doing that as well she had a respiratory infection initially and then she had caught avian pox which had been too much for her any ideas??

    Since there is a history of respiratory disease in your flock, that may also be part of the problem.

    She was introduced just before my hen passed and she wasn't really around her since I had to separate the older ones

    She is eating and drinking... She ate some wet feed I made for her to eat so I could make sure she was getting water and food... I gotta make wet feed for my road island red so I made some and gave it to her. I mixed vitamins this morning before work that contain electrolytes but I'm not sure how much of it they drank because I came over to spilled water :l how often would you recommend I give the vitamins to her?
