In the Brooder
- Sep 20, 2011
I posted that a couple of my hens have wounds under their wings from my rooster's mounts. I have them separated, saddles on, wounds blue-koted..... Everything was fine yesterday after and the hens seemed irritated with me for making them sit on my lap. This morning one of my hens with wounds, a Wynadotte, is acting funny. She stands on the roost or ground, falling asleep, wont take treats and lets me get close, both not normal at all. She is kinda puffed out and seems sad. WHAT is wrong with her. The wound looks like it is starting to heal, no bugs or rotting that I can see on her or wound. She hasn't laid an egg in a couple of days....I am really worried. Should I keep her away from the rest? I need advice I am not the greatest farmer. I am a city rat playing country mouse...if you know what I mean! Thanks for anyone's help!
