    My nearly one yr old hen is loosing feathers so I think she's going into a molt. Just now she was dust bathing and one of the other hens disturbed her and when she got up she was dizzy. She has been eating OK and drinking. Has anyone seen this before with their hens? She literaly looked drunk.

    I was reading a few days ago that some hens have a hard time with the molt,some even go lame.So maybe that is what it is.

    Thanks Henny Penny. I think she's OK I just got scared. She jumped up on a piece of furniture just now to look in the back window and when I took treats out to lock them up she came running after me flapping her wings. I just love them so much I worry all the time.[​IMG]
