    Hello All! Like u, i am also a chicken lover. my experience and love for chickens started a few years ago when i had my first 2 chickens (or the only ones i can recall) one of them, the female, was an egyption chicken. sadly her companion was attacked by dogs at night and she had 2 live through a lot of hopeless times in which v all thought she would surely die. now [​IMG] i hv lost her (dogs attacked). with a severe devastating mistake constantly comming back to me i tried my best 2 get my mind off her...passing...so got more chickens but now hv a huge problem on my hand...

    one more thing, the reason why i came here: the new chickens i hv bought are now getting along with the whole group but one of them got hurt somehow. when i came back i saw her lying on the ground in my garden next to the pen built for the chickens but her leg was turning blue-ish-y. right now i hv seperated her from the others and brought her where it is warm and am currently giving her food plus water. however i am worried about her condition as she is shaking. apparantly lazy and lethargic she is no longer as active or HYPER as before. infact she has stopped limping and i hv wrapped a cloth around her leg. any advice anyone?
