    I have 2 Seabrights, 1 roo, 1 pullet who go everywhere in the yard together. The pullet has been staying about 10 feet behind and will not scratch or eat. She is moving slow. i picked her up this evening and she was sweating? I think. I am hoping I do not go out in the morning to a dead bird. anyone have any ideas what to look for?

    What do you mean by sweating? How old are they? If possible go to the sticky at the top of this thread and tell us a little more about your chick.

    If you think she's sick, you might isolate her in a warm (not hot) dry, dim environment and try some nutritional support; scrambled egg, vitamins, moist oatmeal, etc.

    Also, since your rooster only has one hen, is it possible that she's overworked by the roo?
