In the Brooder
- Apr 18, 2013
Hi guys. I have a Dominque hen who went into a heavy molt about 2 1/2 months ago. She's lost a lot of weight. At first I just noticed she was hanging out by herself a lot then standing on one foot even in 60 degree weather to stay warm. She has been hanging in the brooder box for a couple weeks and I've been taking her food and water in the morning. Then she got hurt by a rooster so I brought her in to heal. I would put her back outside but am now concerned about her shivering. She's getting in a few feared but not nearly enough. She's still frail and baldish. I've tried everything from feather fixer to tuna. She'll devour some things then not eat... what do I do? Thanks!
