One of our hens has been looking peaked for about a week or so. I noticed she looked "off" so we caught her and found a bald patch on her chest. Our geese have been a bit of bullies lately so I really don't know if it was caused by them or if it's something else. She's pretty dominant though and scares the hens away, so I don't think it was them. Her face seems different and she just kinda looks miserable. Her behavior is normal though, part of the flock, rushes to feed when we feed them, etc. etc.
I noticed today her feet are a tad more pink? Mostly on the webbed parts. Another hen is also looking pink on her feet but nothing else similar to the sick hen.
Any idea what it could be/what we can do? We tried feeding her nutridench straight in her mouth (albeit only once), and have been putting it in their water on and off this winter for extra nutrition.
Thanks in advance!
