(Here is what the original post was about: a sick hen I had. It turned into my whole flock death problem) Tonight when I went to lock my chickens up, my 9 month old Banevelder was sitting on the floor, not on the perch. Come to think of it, I have in the past seen her sit down when she stops. You could say woop-de-doo, but I quote from Hobby Farms Chicken Magazine Vol. 1 No. 2, " When it (a chicken) pauses, it doesn't sit; it stands erect with its tail held high." At first I thought that her sitting habit was just her personality, but now with her not jumping on the perch I am beginning to worry. Furthermore, I noticed that her poop was white and green and runny. Then I knew for sure something was up. I know that she doesn't have very much evidence for disease so far (she isn't droopy at all), but I want to jump on top of it right away, because I know that an early detection and treatment has the highest rate of survival. Could this be worms? I do not worm my birds. Start of a bacterial infection? I do have some penicillin on hand, so should I give her that, or should I wait it out? Thanks!!!!
