    leilani10 Out Of The Brooder

    woke up to free range my ten chickens. My Henny Hen was lathargic and when she did walk it was slow . She ate warm steel cut oats now is just hunched up. Should I bring her in? Thanks

    How old is she? Mites, worms, and being egg bound would be things I would check for. Coccidiosis is another disease of young birds with signs like lethargy, puffing up, poor appetite, paleness, and diarrhea (sometimes with blood.)
