    I love my new chickens! My husband thought I was crazy and certainly did not embrace the idea, but we got 'em, 2 bar rock reds and 2 rhode island reds. Now guess who throws carrots in the food processor daily, adds raisins and oatmeal and calls his little girls to feed them every morning? Well he's out of town right now, and one of his girls is not lookin so good. Yesterday she was all wobbly on her feet, kept falling over, poop on her back feathers and just generally not herself. Thought she was better this morning, but got home from work to find her still the same. Any suggestions about what to do with a chicken that keeps falling over when she walks? She's about 7 months old. I heard these were easy pets!!! boo

    Welcome to BYC! I don't know the answer (sorry) but if you haven't posted yet on the emergencies/injuries section, please do! You're sure some great advice and don't worry about it not being an emergency -- all health related items go there. Good luck!

    Is your girl better today? If not, please re-post in the emergencies section. Someone can help you, I'm sure. I hope she's doing better and please keep an eye on the rest of your flock too!
