Hi, I'm brand new to the blog. I have a small flock of 4 hens, now three. Earlier this morning I found Beatrice, my Americauna, stretched out under the coop. I had noticed her lack of appetite and energy over the last couple of days. I spread some food out right in front of her and later brought her some tasty favorites like apple and cantaloupe seeds which did tempt her a bit. She seemed listless and spent a lot of time just standing in one place. Her egg production has always been poor and since the time she was a chick her stools have been runnier than the other gals. I don't know if she was sick for a long time because of those reasons. I looked but did not notice mucus or any lesions. From what I've read hear I'm afraid she may have had a disease. (Although, I am relieved to know that sometimes chickens just died suddenly.) My coop has a wooden floor and my run is just the bare ground with scattered wood shavings and grass clippings. How do I go about cleaning/disinfecting it? I usually just rake out the poop and spread a new layer of clippings each week. I'm worried about the other chickens being exposed to her droppings or pecking around where I found her still form. What is the best way to thoroughly clean? Also, should I bathe them? How would I go about doing that? Is there some kind of powdered disinfectant I can spread around? Thanks so much for you help and experience!
