    My 6 Gold Comets pullets are about 7 weeks old & today one is acting like she is having trouble standing. She lays on her side. I've used the DLM in their 3' x 5' brooder located in my heated shop. I let them out into a small run during the day because I haven't finished their coop & run. Anyone have any idea what might be the problem? [​IMG]

    well does she limp if she does walk? because I have 2 golden comets but they are only 3 1/2 weeks old and well they both lay down on their side a lot. Yet the main thing to me would be watch her to see if she is walking if limping or not going long ways at once then there may be something wrong but if she is able to walk to the water and food she should be ok. But yet I am not an expert either.
