    Its been real cold up here in NH for the last week (about 15-20)

    Today I noticed my big BR couldnt crow, he does all the motions but nothing comes out ?!?! Before today I noticed his crow was different but figured it was b/c it was cold and then today nothing.

    I did have a sick hen last week (shes still a little sick) but was treated with anti's and now have another that looks to be getting a little sick. Wonder if this has anything to do with the roos ?? or if this is normal b/c its so cold ??


    Thanks for the help !!

    Its not normal.

    You may need to treat your whole flock, something could be passing from one to the other.

    ETA: Do you think the stall dry I put in the coop could have anything to do with this ??

    I use stall dry in my coop and run. Never have had a problem.. So I dont think it would be that.
