    Great news! Hen 1 started feeling better a week or so ago and now you can not tell she was ever sick. Blue has dramatically improved the last couple of days and is eating and playing as she should. Not all bloated or sick acting at all. The only difference between these hens and the one who got it first and died the 3rd day is a 10cc shot of Ivermectin to the chest. Took a while but my girls are well again. My wife called a few minutes ago and said Blue was sitting on her lap just like old times and feels good. I guess we learned something and I hope this news helps some other sick girls somewhere. Worms will kill them. If that is what it was. We did move them to an area with better drainage to get away from nasty water but it has not rained anyway. We are very happy again.
