In the Brooder
- Feb 25, 2014
we have a silver crested polish hen that was missing feathers under her wings and a little on her back. Weve rubbed our flock down with DE every so often so we thought that would take care of it. She ate, roosted and kept up with the others but today she laid down in the run and died suddenly. Any ideas what could have been wrong? No other chickens seem to have the same problem. Although our Cochin rooster has red irritated looking spots on his feet that haven't gotten much better with DE. The other 12 hens are fine. Any thoughts??
