    Thursday I noticed one of my chickens sounded a little hoarse. On Friday she became disoriented and was stumbling backwards and couldn't stand. A couple hours later she was completely fine. On Sunday she did this all over again except this time she would only turn to the right to walk. She holds One Wing out a little from her body and it hangs down some plus one of her legs isn't working good. She appears a slight bit better today but she is sitting a lot. She is eating and drinking. It's almost as if she had a stroke. She is around 1 year old.
