Hello Everyone im new so I will apologies right up front. 7 Month old Buff Orpington 1 of 3 ready to lay. Red Combs squats when approached so im assuming she is ready to lay.
about 5 days ago she started with Poopy butt, cleaned as per instructions on other posts. Medicated with DE, Oxine in the water, and dewormed. her attitude and appetite are normal. But today, Reddish shanks and feet?. she seems a little more lethargic but not showing any adverse negative behavior. (sorry no pictures) I'm great in medicine but horrible with tech.

Please help.

The red feet and legs can be a sign of sexual maturity. It depends on the coloring and breed of chicken or rooster. A picture may help, just to make sure it's not inflammation or mites. Try putting some Probios or other probiotics in her water for the diarrhea. Plain yogurt or buttermilk also contain them. Trim any excess vent feathers to keep poo from sticking.
