    I have 4 brown shaver chickens. 1 of them has started to not eat and walk slow. she prefers to just sit all the time. her comb is no longer standing. my vet clinics are closed at the moment so i will get worming medicine in the morning (as this seems to be the first thing anyone does first). they eat laying pellets and have plenty of fresh water. they are free range and go wherever they want. i cant tell yet what colour her poop is as she hasnt gone yet. any advice would be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Sorry to here about your hen
    And probably way too late but I've saved some of my shavers with natural yoghurt when unable to get to a vet on a Sunday
