Im to the point where I notice my first little hen, Stephanie, is getting older. She is 4, maybe 5, which when I was reading around.... isn't as old as a lot of hens on here. But she is slowing down on her speed and walking funny like she has arthritis. I just want to be prepared on how to take care of her, how to accommodate her, and what to look out for since I have never had an older hen. She was laying great. A few weeks ago she laid an egg with a lot of blood on it, laid a couple normal ones after that, and since then hasn't laid at all. Just want to be cautious of that and know whether it could be a reproductive issue. I am not familiar with them at all. I cleaned out their coop today and noticed blood smears around the nest, maybe from that one day? I guess, I don't know what I am even asking! Just want to know what you guys do for your older hens? I want to keep her around as long as she is comfortable though! She's my first and has survived a lot and I care for her deeply! She is still top hen too. Thanks for any advice or stories or anything in advance!
