    I am new to all of this so i hope someone can help me. My husband recently died and i don't know what todo with the 2 chickens we have. One of them seems to be very lethargic and doesn't seem to want to eat and the other one has a very dull look on the comb etc not the usual bright colour. any ideas as to what i should do would be appreciated.

    Sorry to hear about your loss.

    You will get a better response if you post in the Emergency/Diseases Forum. There is a big long list of questions in one of the stickies that you should read through/answer to narrow things down.

    THings we need to know:
    Diet?
    Age?
    Recent illnesses?
    Have you checked for mites?
    Symptoms?

    You get the idea. Good luck!

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss!

    Can you provide more details, i.e., how old are they, how long have they been like this, what are you feeding, how are their poops etc. The more details you can provide the easier it will be for someone to help you diagnose the problem. Their are some very experienced people on this site who are very willing to help.

    My prayers are with you.
