Since I last posted on here and got so many great replies, I lost one of my hens to and unknown illness or old age. I picked up 4 more Golden Comets and was experiencing great egg production! I understand at this time of year and light molting things would slow down and did. Now one of the hens is sick, she hops on one leg and the other hens were running her off when she tried to eat or drink. I fed her separately for a couple of days, she got stronger and the other hens and my rooster are more accepting of her. I have no idea what her illness is and the other hens have completely stopped laying. It has been a week. Any ideas?? Should I separate her? One book I was reading suggested I should have put her down immediately.
