    My 1 year old gen is having some problems, she just seems to be sitting around. Hasn't moved all day.
    She has a weird looking issue with her underside. Any advice? [​IMG]

    Hello and Welcome to BYC.

    So sorry about your hen, and sorry I don't have an answer.
    But I do know sitting around and not moving is a sign she is very ill.

    Please post the problem under Emergencies forum and hopefully you can get some experienced advice.

    If you can't take her to a vet, please post in full detail and photos at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread.
