    Hi, Me again!
    I went out this morning and got some better photos of our new arrival.
    I have no experience with chickens so all replies are appreciated.
    Age, breed and gender please.

    Can we have pictures without the fencing in the way? Thanks. [​IMG]

    From what I can tell, you have a pullet, young (3ish months) and I think Cuckoo Marans.

    They don't leave each other's side, they are together at all times since maran arrived.

    Looks like a cuckoo Marans and maybe a light Sussex, around 3ish months.

    the Marans does not look well. Hunched up like that isn't normal.

    Someone else said that, she was found in the pouring rain and a neighbour put her in our coup thinking it was ours (we weren't home) and I cannot locate owners of either chicken.
    She is eating and drinking plenty (I think)
    Would it be a trip to the vet?
    Advice please

    Vets generally can't do much for chickens. I would probably try to help her yourself by offering some poultry vitamins/electrolytes in her water and possibly treating for Coccidiosis with Corid.
