Hi, I'm a novice when it comes to raising chickens. I have 6 hens and one rooster. About 2 months ago, I purchased a female pullet and a cockerel. The cockerel looked fine, but the little pullet looked rough. She was extremely smaller, had dry looking skin, and very few feathers. I thought that she might have been especially stressed during transport. The cockerel is growing to be a large beautiful rooster. However, my little girl is looking worse and appears somewhat listless. She appears to be the same weight and in the same general poor health as when she arrived. The rest of the flock is thriving. I sure would appreciate any suggestions that would help me save her.
