    Try posting in the disease forum and add more information. Like the food she's eating, how she's acting, age, etc

    Best of luck!

    Are you saying that happened overnight? It may be moulting, if so she'll be fine. If it was overnight, I have no idea

    Over amorous Roo, moulting, or mites/lice?? Late Summer/Fall is the best time to dust/worm and up protein anyway. I would just do it now.

    It happened pretty fast and we have no roo. All my other hens look fine!!! She Is pretty young I don't know the exact age but she just started laying I give them table scraps and regular chicken food everyday they live on our farm and we let then out 4 times a week all day to roam and scratch for bugs. She acts a little more skittish than the others but that's it.
