It just seems that I am having one tragedy after another. My flock was recently battling Infectious Bronchitis I lost two birds, one made a full recovery, and my poor Wyandotte Smokey is still battling/recovering from the illness. Last night we found her standing in the pen with her scalp laying next to her. No blood at all but a chunk is definitely missing. The Bronchitis has left her very tiny, about the size of a 9 week old chicken, but she is 16 weeks old. We have been doing everything we can to nurse her back to health and as soon as we started to see an improvement this happens to her. I'm not sure what to do. My two roosters have just started crowing and trying to mate with the girls. My Silkie roo is very good to them but my EE roo is a giant and he doesn't seem to know what he's doing yet. Is there anything I can do to help my Wyandotte or is it too late for her? And how do I prevent this from happening again?
