Been an awful summer. Lost my Beatrice (Black Barred Hen) while I was away in Europe. She had been ill but I thought she was getting better before I left. My husband had to bury her 4 days before I came back. Coop was still happy but a week ago had an incident. Blood in the run! Everbody came out when I went to clean the coop and run which I do everyday in the warm monthsand let them free range, My girl Rosie hid! Couldn't find her for a while. Found her then put her in the run only to have another red peck her vent! More blood! Isolated her. Rosie. Thought at first after the swelling that it might be prolapse or egg bound. Started soaks for 20 minutes. (She smelled like a fish). Then thought it was vent gleet. Applied hemorrhoid cream and anti-fungal cream! She won't eat yogurt but the whole rest of my flock is enjoying it! Putting apple cider vinegar in all water containers, She drinks that! So after a week, I attempted to get her back in the flock during free range time while hosing out the run and cleaning the coop. All the dynamics of the coop have changed! Barred hens are now chasing her through the yard. Isolated them in an internal run. She is so sad. I am so sad! Tonight after all the other 4 hens went to sleep, I washed her off again. Applied the hemorrhodial cream, anti-fungal, blue kot and Vick's on her comb! Waited until the rest of the flock was asleep in the coop. Put her in. She can't spend the rest of her life in isolation! No noise. I am praying that they all walk out peacefully tomorrow in search of food. Have 2 new hens coming this week. A bit worried about the stress level in the coop. Have to say I protected my Rosie a couple of times with loud noises and don't seem to have the trust of my other hens. Any advice would be helpful. Stressed chicken mama!
