    I'm a tad worried about my White Rock hen, Opal. Can someone tell me If I'm overreacting?

    -Sometimes (increasingly more often), she will stand still and look like she's going to hurl.
    -She has a small black spot on her wattle. Does this mean anything?

    She's been exhibiting the black spot for quite awhile; maybe two-three weeks. The other symptom has been occuring for about three days.

    Wish I had an answer. I'm sure someone will come along with some help soon. [​IMG]

    Wouldn't worry about the black spot, probably pecked or dirt mark. The hurling reflex, hummm. did you feel her croup? Does it feel bean baggy or water balloon feeling, any bad oder from her mouth? Has she been pigging out on something more lately?
