    hi.
    just an update on the hen with the sore leg,i put her along side the others yesterday and it seem to cheer her up but this morning when i went to put her out her left eye(same side as sore leg) is completely closed, no discard or anything.
    i wonder if she is at her end-do i need to cull????really upset about this
    please help
