Hi everyone and thank you for the warm welcome. we live in Queensland Australia. We acquired 4 point of lay pullets at Christmas time, within a week or two we were getting 2-3 eggs per day. My girls are brown and I do not know their breed I think they are a cross.Today the girls had free time in the garden and I noticed one of them was rather listless, she did scratch around for a bit and then she'd plonk herself down and just sit there, sometimes under a shrub and at other times in the open, it is extremely windy and overcast today, but we have had high temperatures of up to 33celsius she was not staying with her friends and was generally just keeping to herself. I believe she is the one not laying any eggs, the other hens don't seem to be harassing her at this stage. They are being fed a "Premium top layer mash" get plenty of fresh water and scraps from the kitchen every day. Can anyone give me an idea if there is something I could do to help her reach her potential. I am quite worried. we did pick her up and feel her bottom area but there didn't seem to be any blockage and her little poo she did was white and yellow. all feedback would be most welcome Many thanks MOO MOO PS just gone out to check on her its not dark yet for another hour and she has got first position on the roost the other girls are still mooching around!
