I have 22 hens and 1 rooster, I have several large breeds. My live-in boyfriend called me at work and told me one of our buff orpington hens was unlively and so he thought she was smothered or dehydrated. He lifted her up and took her to water and noticed a big wound on back of her neck(penetrated the flesh
I will also note that we lost another buff a cpl months ago due to it getting smothered, maybe they are low on the pecking order?? Other hens just disregard them?? Very sad because they are my favorite of the 5 breeds I have!!
Thanks for any opinions/thoughts!
