In the Brooder
- May 18, 2017
A couple of days ago, I lost one of my hens. She was four and a half. She seemed to have lost strength in her legs. She could walk, but not very well and not very far. She was doing a lot of flapping. I isolated her, just in case. Two days after isolation, she passed. Well, I came home from work, fed my girls, and noticed this red on the back of the feathers of one of them. She’s the same age, four and a half, and it has rained a lot here in SC, so maybe this is just dirt. She wouldn’t let me grab her and see, so I’m hoping maybe someone here can help. Do y’all think she’s just dirty or do you think something is wrong? Picture attached.
