    Hi to all,
    Haven't been on for a while been busy doing everyday things. Anyway one of my hens was very sluggish this morning, she was doing well yesterday. Her color is great she eats and drinks, doesn't stay away from the others and lays everyday, her eyes are clear and no mites that I can see. When I let them out this morning all came out except 2nd lady (RIR) and Skinny (Buff). Skinny was walking funny as though she could not get her balance so she would sit. Then she would try again and 2nd Lady was acting as though she wanted to help. I checked everything and saw no signs of trouble. She came out in about 20 mins afterwards and walking fine and wanting something to eat. I feed them and fresh water, she seems much better as though nothing was wrong. Any help will be grateful. Thank you so much.[​IMG]
