In the Brooder
- Nov 15, 2013
One of my hens has been sitting on the nest box all day until this afternoon, but she is still in the hen house and wont go oitside. She appears healthy in the eyes and feathers. Vent seems normal. But the comb is pale and laid over. This is my alpha hen too and she dont like being picked up but she offered no resistance to picking her up and examining her. Twice. I am gonna seperate her to a little pen for now. Any feedback would be appreciatedas this hen needs to live. She usually hatches a clutch and two or three months later is back at it. She is a buff orp, if that helps. And is around ome year old. She is not molting. I really have no clue whats up with her.
