    I have a hen that is not feeling very well, i found her last thursday laying on the ground and not able to keep her balance. so i brought her into the house and warmed her up and it looked like she was doing better on sunday so i put her back in with the other chickens. She did good for the two days and this morning she was unable to jump up on the roost they have in the yard and i also noiced that her comb is very limp. I hope some one can help me out with her plus all the hen are molting to. please help [​IMG]

    This sounds similar to what my chickie has. He has similar neurological symptoms and responds to warmth as well. I have ended up putting him in an isolation pen with a heat lamp, and he's eating and drinking well in there. I will let you know if I discover what it is causing this, or if you find out first, please let me know!!

    Best of luck [​IMG]
