    No egg stuck. Here is a closer up pic. She was like that before the dog sat next to her and they are used to the dogs being out with them.

    My chickens look like that when they've got cocci, or if they're anemic from external parasites.

    Thankyou. I'm big on mites and keeping them at bay. I will go check the coop again for them. I have separated her from the others and I'm just going to go give her some revitaliser supplement I have. Think I will treat for cocci just incase.

    I tell you it's just one thing after another right now :he

    Her tail comes up when walking. I've just given her 2 ml of revitaliser. And put some in the water. She has just eaten and drank again on her own but then gone and stood back by herself. I've wormed with Panacur. We don't have a licensed poultry wormer here. I've also used verm -x a supposed natural wormer endorsed by vets over here. I may whop some more horse wormer down them. We have a friend who is a vet so I may pop her to see him all though he's not ofay in chickens. Even though his wife keeps them. I've spoke to him about worming with the horse wormer as I thought I had over dosed them and he says you would have to give them enormous amounts to cause any damage. Maybe I didn't give them enough.

    Can't see any mites but I've been round with the DE earth again.

    I had chickens in the 70s & part of the 80s. I don't remember any of them getting sick. The world is changing.
