In the Brooder
- Jun 12, 2008
We've had our new pullets that are around 10 weeks old for one week. The last couple of days we decided to let them free range with our dogs around. The pugs have chased them a few times but nothing bad. Our lab is pretty relaxed and doesn't go around them much. So I was outside earlier and everyone seemed fine. One of the pullets was by itself a lot which I thought was odd but we tried putting it with the rest of them and it kept leaving so I went inside. My son threw some scraps outside 30 minutes later and came back in and said one was dead! I went outside and I'm pretty sure it was the same one that had been by itself. It was laying on the ground in an odd way and it was bleeding in the face. I think maybe one of the eyes was gone. Its still breathing even now. I picked it up to move it and it was limp. It has lost some feathers around the face and neck.
