    The lady at the feed store makes me crazy!! She is so dumb!! And she supposedly has her own chickens. Previously she told me that feeding corn can cause feather loss https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=258498

    Today my DH went in to get some wormer. We think Lulu, the lame runt may have gapeworm as she is shaking her head and started making gagging movements. When he told the lady at the feed store about the head shaking she said "its not worms, she has brain damage. One of the other chickens probably stepped on her neck. " Then she asked him if she falls over, and he said yes because her leg gives out not because of brain damage!

    What is gapeworm? My EE, see "EE pullet making wheezing sounds. Please help!", makes gagging motions. Maybe it's gapeworm? I dunno.
