    We have a red star that is about 3 yrs old. Started having intermittent softshelll broken eggs. Now she has not layed in about three months or so. She has periods where she seems lethargic and has her tail down, faded comb, diarrhea. She has troubl standing and is not really eaten or drunk much. We have her in a crate in the house and have given her food and water and oyster shell. Any ideas wouuld be greatly appreciated.


  2. Hi Pat, so sorry about your girl [​IMG] vv she is 3 years old and egg production will slow down have you ever dewormed her ? or perhaps lice ? try feeding her some wet cat food, I wish I could do more for her but just start with the basics [​IMG]
