    The 4 y.o. hen I posted about yesterday is about the same. She's a bit less cold looking, eating and drinking quite a bit and moving about, although still slowly. This morning I noticed the feathers under her vent have pasty whiteness on them. This wasn't there yesterday. Any advice/suggestions/concerns?

    How is she doing?

    The white on her bumm I would just wash off with warm water and blow dry her on low with a hair dryer.

    I am hoping she is doing ok, and was just chilled. [​IMG]
