    We have a young hen who has suddenly taken to staying in a cage lower than what was her roost and virtually residing there full time. We give her water and feed and she does eat and drink. When she does come down and moves around she does seem all right for the most part. the concern area is that she has diarrhea.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Most of the time more information is needed. How old is she? What type of hen is she? Has she been laying eggs?




    Giving this a *bump*
