    I can't catch a break with my hens. First off they are all
    Mean! Even pecking at me whenever I go into the coop or run. I am now on chicken number 3 with an issue. First one bleed to death as a chick. Second one went lame
    For NO reason what so ever! And now I am on hen number 3! She was fine one day and the next she went lame just as my 1st chicken did! No other symptoms! First hen with same issue fully recovered (took about 3 weeks) and now this one has the exact same limp for no reason with no other symptoms! Eating, drinking, roosting just fine? I have been free ranging them and unfortunately their coop is close by my kids swing.... My land is vey wet and that is the only dry location ! I am getting frustrated
