    Hi, my name is Robin and I live in Davie Fl.I have one bantam hen and one silky rooster. I work at my friends farm taking care of over 30 chickens.I brought an older hen home 2 weeks ago that wasn't looking well. Her tail was down and she wasn't very interested in food or walking. She started ding much better for about 4 days,tail up and following me around. Now she is worse than before. She is eating but not walking at all and tipping g sideways. Her breast is all bone but her stomach and between her legs are heavy.she weighs 5.5lbs.
