I wrote that rhyming stuff hoping to get enough attention for my sick R.I. Red (Rhoda) that she will BE HEALED! The scenario: It turned cold three days ago and snowed. My three ladies (Rhoda, Rhonda, and Marilyn) refused to come out of their coop. They won't even come down the ramp into the pen, much less roam the back yard like usual. We talk to them, hand-feed them treats, leave their food and water in the coop with them, and provide a small oil-filled heater for warmth. This is not the first time they have seen snow or experienced cold, but is the first time they have acted this way. On the first day, Rhoda got the runs, with the stool very yellow and mucous-like. That has persisted for three days, and her comb and wattles have gotten pale and purple-ish. She seems sluggish, and is off her feed. Her sisters still won't leave the coop either, but they are looking fine and have no symptoms. I confess that Rhoda is a bit neurotic and standoff-ish, so I'm wondering if the stress of the very sudden cold/snow has really affected her. What are your thoughts, my fellow travelers?
