    I let my girls out today while I was working in pen to graze a little I didn't see anything happen but a hen is having troubles walking and using her wings to hold her up. So I have a cage I use as sick bay but my question is so my question is should intake her out of pen or leave her in cage inside pen? It's very hot here today so I have her sitting on a ice pack trying to cool her off. Also have a fan moving air around her and lots of fresh cool water. Felt her legs and she didn't seems to have anything out of place or anything she reacted to me touching. Poor baby!!
