a couple of weeks ago I brought my elderly BO Kate Smith in because she had gotten alarmingly skinny. I had her in for a couple of days, fed her good and I thought she felt a little meatier (for lack of a better word, I don't eat my pets) so I put her back in the coop in a crate with a heat lamp for one night and she seemed fine but after observing her I felt she wasn't eating. So I brought her in again and now the temps average in the single digits to twenties, night and day, so I don't want to put her back out until we get a warm stretch of weather . Anyway this morning one of my EE's was walking funny, like she was dragging her butt a bit and I picked her up and looked and her beautiful fluffybutt was covered with dried poo! A lot of it!! I didn't have time to do anything this morning so when I got home about an hour ago, I brought her in, put her in a tub, and washed her poor little poopy fluffybutt. So now it's 3:30, I dried her with a hair drier a bit but she is still wet and I put her in with Kate Smith. (the EE is one of the lovely Lennon Sisters BTW). So do I keep her in overnight so she has a chance to dry and when I put her back should she go in the crate with the heat lamp? and I want to put Kate Smith back too but now she's been in the house for about a week and I'm afraid to put her back in because it's so cold. And I do obsess about all of them (25) being cold, they have two heat lamps but even with those it's still about 20 in the coop when its 6 outside. help! I just LOVE my chooks!
