    Hi

    Since yesterday one of our chooks, Matilda, keeps falling forward, temperature dropped to -5 though the rest are fine. Took her in last night fed her turmeric tea, she looks better but is still falling over. Can anyone help, advice??

    Thanks

    Anne

    She is much improved :) couple of nights of TLC in the house and turmeric tea seem to have done the trick :) she seems to have hurt her leg but it's improving :)

    That is good! I have heard good things about turmeric tea. Let us know if you need anything else. Sorry I didn't see your post sooner. Been busy. But I wanted to back track and Welcome you to Backyard Chickens[​IMG]
