    Hi-
    I am not new to chickens or this website. I have gleaned a lot of info just from reading others' problems and experience. Now I am having problems with a sick chicken of my own and trying to figure out how to start a thread. I have already taken the chicken to the vet, but I could still use some help.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and "tech support." [​IMG]
    My sick hen probably has an internal layer issue and is quite ill. I just like to get as much information as possible, and even the vet I took her to (who has avian experience) did not know several things I have learned from this group. The hen does seem a bit better this afternoon, though.
    I just feel that I should do what I can for my animals, since I am the responsible party. Many times a fairly simple or even cheap remedy can be useful if the information is available. Plus, in the heat of a situation, sometimes I forget the obvious choice.
    Thanks everybody!
