    Oops, I ment *emaciated* dang auto correct. :oops:

    Hey, my friends I really need your help. A friend of mine is have trouble with his girl. His question is as follows:

    Went out this morning to feed/water hens. All were good except for "Big Red". When she came through the doorway, she acted like she had been drinking. A Nicky happened to be at my house, and she picked "Red" up and realized she was extremely emaciated, as well as, not able to hardly walk without falling over sideways.

    "Red" appeared to be fine yesterday. So I have no idea what's happened to her?? I saw her eat some tomato this morning, and we've given her some yogurt too! Also, "Red" and another hen had a run-in with one of my dog (a Boxer) several days back, but neither appeared harmed at the time, or days after. Not even sure my dog got hold of them! One last thing is that I have seen some droppings that were clear, with yellowish center on the concrete floor, but not sure who's poo it is ( could have been any of four hens ).

    Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for your assistance....
