In the Brooder
- Sep 26, 2012
We have 6 RIR laying hens in our backyard. We've had them about 8 months and they are good egg layers, energetic and always ready to eat. One of them this morning is not eating and just standing in one place not moving with her mouth open slightly. the other ones are ignoring her and going about business as usual. MY children handle these chickens often picking them up etc. Is there any danger to our children and what do you think is wrong with the sick hen?
