    My hen has not been well for about a week so I have separated her from the flock and today I found this in her next box. Does anyone know what it could be? Her symptoms are:
    -lathargic
    -not eating or drinking
    - poppy butt
    -droopy and pale crown
    - swollen hot belly
    -swollen, hot belly[​IMG][​IMG]
