    I do have them on medicated starter at the moment (I know! Please don't turn on me!!)

    I highly doubt that is the cause however as she was like this when I picked her up and was on a very pricey organic starter and had vitamins in the water. The breeder is well known around here and has amazing birds.

    She also is not exhibiting any of the other symptoms.

    I can grab some liver on the way home anyways. It never goes to waste between the dogs, cats and chickens :)

    Unfortunately the link you provided did not work for me.

    Got home finally but after last nights fiasco I am not letting them out in this rain for only 2.5 hours to pitch dark! I will not sit out in this. Got to get things inside ready for the contractor from County doing the roof/house repairs. He called today that they will start tomorrow!!!! So clean house today and talk to chickens tomorrow about staying out of falling roof tear down! Or they will not be able to come out of kennel tomorrow. I don't want them hurt.

    Besides after roaming ALL day beginning at 6:30am and fighting to get them in last night at almost 8..... One egg yesterday and still only 1 today. Hmmmm even with 20 degrees they were all laying every day. Thought they would lay everyday in spring. HMMMMMMM 3 year olds.
