    We adopted two rescue chickens 3 days ago. One is getting along just fine but the other one just stands there like a statue and will not eat or drink, we really dont want to lose her but dont know what to do to help her. Does anyone have any ideas on what we can do to help her?? We have had to take her out of the coop as our little Pekin Bantums keep attacking her. She is a 12 month old Brown Warren.

  2. Rescue birds can arrive pretty traumatized. I'd keep her separated, keep food water in easy access, and watch her as often as ya can.

    But I'm sure you're already doing all that!

    Good luck w/ her and good on ya'll for taking in a rescue.
