    So, my one hen was sick last week and suddenly another one is sick today. I've been treating them for coccidiosis but the one has only perked up slightly and the other shouldn't have fallen ill, right?

    I also realized that our new rooster (leghorn) is limping and getting worse every day. I thought it was growing pains since he's gotten so tall so fast but don't think it should be getting worse unless, I guess, he's having another spurt.

    Anyone with insight that can help me? I think i'll have to take them to the vet.

    Symtpoms of the hens???

    any other symptoms on the roo????

    Also, did you quarantine the new rooster?? Did the hens fall sick after you introduced him??

    Tell us about their feed, water, living conditions, etc. There is a sticky at the top of the emergency topics that says what kind of information to post.

    We need a little more information to be able to help.
