    One of my darling hens is very unwell and i think she has been on and off for sometime. She has taken to sleeping under the deck but the last couple of nights I have brought her inside. I don't think she is egg bound as she is going to the toilet even though it is very runny. And she hasn't been laying any eggs that I have noticed. She is eating very little if at all. The other 2 are very healthy and they were all wormed a couple of months ago.

    I have no idea what to do for her, any advice would be much appreciated. I would hate to loose her.

    Update Irene must have had a better day today, she followed me into the yard and had some dinner. Maybe she needs some supplements, any suggestions? She tends to have bad days and better days. Di
