    to the same thing I just lost Olivia too. This time it is Audrey.
    4 year old hen
    comb and wattles still red
    still interested in life around her [​IMG]
    eating/drinking

    symptom(s) that have me concerned?

    totally mess of a butt. no more fluffy butt. runny watery stools
    She seems gassy(?) she is pecking/ cleaning her own butt area but when she does it sounds like she is passing gas.

    The flock is being wormed. I cleaned the coop after loosing Olivia just last weekend
    No one else has a messy butt.. yet

    I have brought her into the house to isolate her and keep her warm/dry

    It has been wet and colder than our "normal" spring so far here in the North East.

    Audrey is my fave girl. She is the pushy go getter. Always has been [​IMG] I just dont want to loose my girls to what ever this might be.
    I al;so have a new group of chicks coming mid June from MPC and cant risk them either.

    This is the hard part of having pets [​IMG]
