In the Brooder

Oh my!!!! This stuff only happens to me! One of my Black Sex Link Hens climbed in the middle of a big roll of poultry wire and got stuck! I have been looking for her for a week and a half we finally found her yesterday I was freaking out and crying it took us 30 minutes to cut her out and she was still alive I gave her electrolytes and her water she was stumbling around that found her balance and drink and drink and drink and ate some food she was bound and determined that she was roosting last night with the others so I let her in hopes that she would be accepted back into the flock with no problems and she was the temperatures down here have been in the 50s and has been foggy and drizzly so I think that's what Saved her!! she seems to be decent shape but I can tell she's got lumps in her from eggs that need to be removed and I need to also clean her of the smell of urine and clean her back area from poop what's the best way to do this help ! She is out walking around with the rest of the hens today and there does not seem to be any pecking order issue so I'm glad for that But I do see the lamps and I do see her with her we can hang in just a little bit on one side what's the best did to do!!!
