Hi there, I am in need of some advice or input on an Older Hen I has not come out of the nesting house for at least 1 day! Here is the info I have so far: ~ Older Hen, Possibly 3-5 years old, not sure of breed but large and black with some red on chest and some black in comb/wattles ~ Extreme Heat over the past few weeks, off/on Ranging anywhere from 100 degrees all the way down to 45 degrees at night ~ I have provided fresh cool water throughout the heat of the days along with 16 fl oz water bottles frozen in the water troughs to keep them cool. Access to plenty of shade areas all over the yard, They are free ranged. ~ Feed: Non GMO layer, Non GMO Scratch, BOSS, Table scraps, Free Range bugs/ grass/ plants/ dirt ~ Has been chased down by 2 Roos over the past couple of weeks for mating, but doesn't want to "give it up" ~ Has layed eggs, not many but at least twice a week ~ Feathers are glistening/shiny, Eyes are clear (when open), Comb and Wattle are red in color where red is present as part of her comb/wattle is black as mentioned above ~ Poo has seemed normal in witnessing it over the weekend until yesterday and today no poo yet today ~ Not eating today, scrambled an egg for her, no interest. ~ Offered water with probiotics and electrolytes and enzymes, have used a 3cc syringe and given 2 cc of this water every couple of hours to ensure she has had fluids ~ Seems to enjoy massage along her back and when approaching the tail, she perks up her back side as if to mate, however her tail is not drooping nor does she seem very puffed up, and she stands up then lays down (alternating) ~ As a precaution, I went ahead with some VetRx to the beak, comb and wattles! Her nostrils weren't wet and she didn't seem wheezy, but with fog lately in the early mornings and hearing some of the other girls sneezing lately, I thought it might do some good for comfort. The other girls who sneezed, it hasn't been a regular occurrence, but I heard some over the weekend from different girls at different times. Some girls will go into the nesting houses to sleep and others want to sleep outside under the stars. I probably just need another nesting house for them to go into at night. I have her in a small wire collapsible dog kennel, like for the size of a Chihuahua, inside the house for now. There is straw for bedding and we are keeping her quiet for the night. I am pretty sure she was outside over the weekend and I noticed her in the nesting house yesterday evening, about 4 pm and she was just perched up on the edge of a nesting box, I suspected she had been there all day as I had not been out there in the morning to let them out of the enclosure. Also, yesterday (Monday) and Today has been moderately temperate, about 85 degrees or lower during the day and about 45 at night. TIA I hope all will be well soon!
