    Hello- This is first post. I bought new adult hens yesterday from a feed store. They made no noise or movement in the truck, but when I got them in their coop the Bantham couldnt walk. It I hold her up, she falls down. She isnt drinking water.. its going to be almost 100 here today.I feel so bad... I think the kid who caught her from the feed store might of hurt her... what do I do????? Help.....

    Bring her to the feedstore and ask them about her. They may have known she was hurt & been waiting to sell her off (hopefully not.) or might replace her for you, or since you didn't go straight back it might just be your loss [​IMG]
