Hi everyone, I am glad to have found your site. I have been raising chickens for over a year now and have been very luck so far. I have 14 hens, 1 rooster, and 5 feisty little chicks. I noticed one of my hens, a beautiful buff, was "puffed up" (feathers all fluffed up and ruffled) and off by herself the other day, she also was not roosting at night, yesterday was more of the same, no roosting, but was eating, today her eyes have turned from gold to blood red, her comb has receded, she looks awful and doesn't want to walk. Lots of diarrhea (white and green - no blood), no appetite. My chickens are free range during the day and go up to a nice pen at night, lots of fresh good food, plenty of fresh water. I didn't see any sign of injury or mites/parasites. She smells rotten and I believe she isn't going to make it. My question is this, when my husband gets home, we are unfortantely going to have to humanely cull her and then incinerate the carcass for safety's sake (I have her isolated just as of today), My question is this, does anyone know what this is? I have so many other chickens and they all seem fine, but could I have the beginnings of an epidemic? I keep them for eggs only and do try to keep them happy and healthy, I would hate to lose anymore. Thanks for your help in advance!
