    hey everyone!!
    one of my delaware hens, who is a 1 1/2 years old is acting WEIRD. when i went out to shut the chooks in tonite, i saw Velma, (thats her name, lol) just standing there w/ her wings kinda droopy-ish.
    so i brought her in and weve been watching her closely and she's just standing there with this greenish-brownish water dripping from her butt. Mom gave her some liquid calcium and she inhaled a little bit of it, and ummm when she tried to cough it out, she splattered poop out at least a foot away everytime she coughed. :eek: GROSS HUH?!?
    um WHAT is wrong with her???!?! she was fine this morning when i let her out!!! i dunno whats going on.
    maybe she ate something that upset her stomach? or is she eggbound? [​IMG]
    thanks everyone!!!!

    thanks guys, she died sometime during the night. [​IMG]
    she was one of the hens that hatched a ton of chicks. [​IMG] ( she was SUCH a good momma. i feel so bad. [​IMG]

    see here she is with here babies. theyre all grown up now but she still took care of them kinda, cuz she didnt get along with the other hens, she stayed with them in the " away from the others" yard.


    thanks diana for your efforts [​IMG] i really really appreciate it. [​IMG].gif
