    That's "old" Jersey, one of the Channel Islands- not New Jersey :p don't worry - you wouldn't be the first to make that mistake!

    Have been looking at this site for advice on chickens for a while- decided to join today because our beloved Rhode Island, "Dora", is finally feeling her age and I wanted some to ask some advice - if anyone thinks they may be able to help it would be much appreciated :) - thread is here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ropped-wings-no-appetite-old-rhode-island-red

    Sorry to hear about your hen. I have a Dora too, one of my favourite chickens.

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. She might benefit from some Vitamins/Electrolytes in the water. Also what about worms? That can make them a little listless. :thumbsup
