Came home last night to find my younger BR hen dead. She has been acting kinda funny the last week, not roosting wiht the others. Lying around more often and slower to move away. I picked her up last night to listen to her breathing, I could not hear any rasping or wheezing. i put her down but did notice she was lighter than normal. My turkeys have no bugs that I can tell and i feed them flock starter with BOSS and scratch as treats. I noticed some dark green runny poo in the coop last night but nothing else. I'm kind of at a loss here, don't know what to do if anything for the rest of the flock. She was about 6-9 months old. i wil miss my little Barbie doll.

Just kidding with you. That's all I think about when I hear somebody say wormed. I work in animal health and one of my animal science teachers at Texas Tech was a veterinarian and would fail you if you said that you wormed something and I just think about his disease class everytime I hear wormed. I know that 9-10 people say it but it just makes me think of that everytime.
