    Just come home after been away for a week and one of my dwarf hens is anemic and very weak . She has some mites on her and I have found some in their house . I have given some vitamins and minerals in some water with a dropper . Her comb is total white and she is very weak . I've clean out the house . Is there anything else I can do for my poor hen ? I have mite power but I think it might be bad for her . What about ash ? Thanks

    Make sure she is dusted and that she has no more mites on her. Then clean out the coop and treat it to make sure the mates don't come back.

    Then make sure she is eating, apple cider vinegar is also useful for rejuvenating sick hens.
