    Hi all,
    I have an EE (she is just over 2 years old) who has not been acting normal for the past number of days. She is acting very mopy, which is unusual for her, she usually is the chicken running all over the place. She is eating very little, and you can see that in her feces. Her feces are very small, around the size of sparrow feces, it is also very mucousy as well. I noticed the other day that she has some weird white growths on her comb. They are fairly small, white, and look around the same as the rest of her comb, ie. not dusty,flaky etc. . I have been trying to feed her yogurt and garlic, (natural antixoidants). My four other chickens are acting perfectly fine, and I am kind of at a lose of what the problem is, or what caused it.
    Any help would be much appreciated!!
