    #1Recently...the last week or so I have noticed that my roo has lost his "cock". I thought nothing of it I suppose for the first day or so but now this has been going on for a week! My girls are in molt could this have something to do with his lack of a cock-a-doodle-doing....[​IMG]

    #2 Some other things that I have noticed is that some of the girls walk around like there is something caught in their throat. they all get fresh water, fresh feed every day, and fresh veggies every couple of days...
    also they free range periodically every couple of days.[​IMG]

    The throat thing makes me think of Gape worm..
    Have you wormed them?
