In the Brooder
- Aug 9, 2012
Saturday when I let the girls out I was amazed to find 1 of our hens had molted from head to toe. She was perky and being a chicken...until I noticed her walking and stumbling around. She staggers a bit, then crosses her legs like she is loosing her balance. I put her in a large dog crate in the garage. No draft, she is warm and dry. I have put some antibiotic in her water. She will eat treats and corn, but won't touch her feed or scratch. She doesn't have any injuries, her eyes are clear, she is alert, and showing personality. Just the stumbling like she is drunk and loosing her balance. Any thoughts or suggestions would be great! Thank you!
