In the Brooder
- Mar 1, 2011
Got our first chickens on Saturday, Feb 26 from a local feed store. They were born on Thursday, Feb 24. Got 12 hens...different breeds (Araucana, New Hampshire, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rock, Dominiques). They've all done great so far. Today I am noticing that one of them is very lethargic. She's the only one sleeping while the others are running around chirping and playing. She's even put herself off in a corner away from the others. We picked her up to exam her and make sure there wasn't anything obvious, but she looks great. She didn't put up a fight to be held like most will do either. And when we put her down, she sort of just stands there and immediately goes back to sleep. We're afraid we may lose her. Should I isolate her? What to do?!!!
