    Good Morning Everyone! Looking forward to learning a lot from all of you. I also hope go share many laughs but right now I need advice about my 5 month old barred rock hen. I found her under the coop all fluffed up and very lethargic. She is eating and drinking and there are no wounds, mites, worms or scales on feet. Although, her feet look a bit swollen. Please help...any/all suggestions appreciated.

    Did she accidentally get left out overnight? Maybe she needs warming up.

    Welcome to BYC. Sorry for the circumstances.

    Hi and Welcome to BYC. Hope you find an answer to your questions. You might want to look under "Raising Backyard Chickens" and then under the "Emergencies, Injuries, Diseases" part of the Forum for help.
