    My hens are 1 year old and I just noticed this today...she seems lethargic but still eating. not really following the flock.
    I dusted her with DE and cleaned off the vent...lots of wet matted feathers pulled out and the vent was swollen and excoriated.

    put her in a dark crate with water away from the others..afraid it might be contagious...any ideas?[​IMG]
