I have 8 poultry (well 9, because I just got another duck today, but he's separate at the moment). I have 7 chickens & 2 ducks. the chickens are all but 1 from early june hatch. one chick and the duck are from early July. They have a small house on a pallet outside (i'm currently building their grown up house so it will be ready before winter). There is a 200 foot fence enclosing a pen for them under some pine & maple trees. They get organic grower/starter but I have some layer too because they're almost old enough. they have had some already, but I haven't switched them over fully. I free range them in the evenings when i'm home, but found if I let them free early in the day they tend to migrate to the neighbors. Also the cockerels get much more uptight and attack the hens & each other more when they're loose for some reason. The pullet in question is a 4.5 month old Salmon Faverolles pullet. We noticed her start to be a little off about a week ago. she seemed sleepy all the time, but she still came to eat treats (mealworms & seed mix). normal poops when I noticed them. I was gone over the weekend and my neighbor noted she didn't 'come out to play' with the others right away in the morning... so Monday I checked her out. I found dirty junk on the roots of her feathers around the bum, decided it looked like a mite problem, and went to get some dust right away. dusted her butt, neck, and under wings. (it's a garden & poultry permethrin dust) I figured it would kill mites & she'd perk up. I also cleaned out the house, dusted that, and caught & sprayed everyone else with some insect killer too. None of the others were having a problem, and only one had any bugs that I saw (2 black bugs. they ran away into his feathers. he didn't have any signs of irritation or problem). She's been in the garage for 2 days now and is still listless. she'll talk to me when I make chicken noises to her. drinks a fair bit, but only picks at food. ate raisins this morning from my hand and some she gulped right down, but others she acted like she couldn't chew apart. She'd spit them out 4 or 5 times before finally swallowing them. I put her on the deck right outside my back door with water & a couple of food options to see what might entice her. I figured sunshine & fresh air can't hurt! She does perk up when I come out and she talks to me, but otherwise she seems to sleep. Definitely not eating enough and I can feel that she's super thin! She shakes her head a bit, but she always has (all my faverolles birds do - I have wondered if it's because of the fluffy feathers by their eyes). i don't feel any bulge in her crop or anything. She prefers to lie down rather than stand mostly... I don't know if her feet hurt or she's just weak. I don't see anything wrong with feet & legs. She looks like a strong wind will blow her right away! She has soaked/fermented grower, grower crumbles, and some layer pellet available to choose from, also some mealworms. She ate a few mealworms and a few bites of food this morning, then just stared at the dish and closed her eyes to sleep. (the towel poop was from noon time. I had her in a box for a while. the two on plywood are from the morning.) I'm wondering if she just had messy poop from something other than mites and it got all over her feathers and I thought the wrong thing. I looked at her poop this morning (she did just a little bit, and it was one normal lump and one with extra water, but no blood or anything unusual in it. basic brown. her bum is still filthy because I was waiting to bathe her to let the bug stuff do it's work for a couple of days. Any thoughts on what I should do for her? Thanks so much!
