Good morning everyone once again my 3 year old hen won’t come down the perch by herself she eats, sleeps, drinks, lays eggs, poos, and everything a normal chicken does besides come down in the morning.
That is one of the first signs that you may have a sick chicken. Get her off, and feel of her crop to see if it is empty and flat, or full, mushy or hard. Look at her tail position to see if her tsil is help up or down. Look her over for lice or mites, and look at her lower belly for any swelling. Offer her some water and some scrambled egg bits and watery chicken feed in a small nowl. Hens at that age may start to suffer from reproductive problems.
Ok, thank you so much have you ever heard of a chicken being afraid of heights? She seems healthy. When she tries to get down she just does not seem comfortable she looks down at the perches below her and kind of gets ready to jump then doesn’t.
