One of my ex-battery hens is a bit under the weather at the moment and would appreciate some advice on whether there is anything more I can do for her. We've had her for 7 months now and she's normally very social, super friendly and nosey but the last few days has just been stood on her own, fluffed up with her head sunken and her tail low to the ground. We brought her in to the house yesterday and made up a bed for her with water and some warm mashed pellets mixed in olive oil, we left her in a quiet darkened room. She drank a little but barely even touched her food. We kept her in over night and this morning seemed a little brighter but still not herself. She had a good drink this morning and ate a little oatmeal and meal worm. Her dropping seemed normal but she did do a watery one first thing this morning but assume thats from not eating much? We thought being away from the other hens would effect her so we have put her back outside today and she started off well having a little scratch and peck around but is now just stood still all by herself. Debating on whether to bring her back inside?? Its hard to know what to do for the best and whether sometimes what you think is best does more harm than good. We've checked her over generally and no sign of being eggbound, mites or crop problems. Her crop seemed a little solid yesterday so we have her a little massage just in case. I've heard epsom salts are a good general remedy. Has anyone tried this? My hens normally get a regular dose of apple cider vinegar in their water and poutlry spice in their food etc Not sure if something like Poulty Tonic might give her a boost. Any suggestions, possible diagnoses, or TLC treatment ideas would be greatly appreciated. Want to do as much as I can for my litle one. Hope to hear from someone soon and Happy New Year to all.
