    I noticed yesterday while my hen was eating she was having these shaking spasms? Anyone have this before or know why? She shakes her head and then heer whole body and she'll jump a lil bit then be fine. It happened a few times and then I didnt really see it anymore? What do I need?

    That's odd. Are there ny other indicators of illness? Is she eating and drinking? How does her poo look? What are you feeding her? Is it fresh?

    No she is eating and drinking fine, I think her poo is fine, they are still on Starter/Grower she is about 6 weeks old. Im going to check and see if she is still doing it later.
