    My young hen "mona" has been pooping water and seems less active. I have been keeping an eye on her and she is eating and drinking lots of water, but today I had to wash her backside as it was messy and caked. Kept her wrapped in towel and than returned her to join the silkie roo and her sister hen. any thoughts? New to this and only have the two Americaunas and one black silkie roo!

    It would be best if you could bring her inside where it's warm. Then you can look at her poop and see how much she's eating and drinking.

    Thanks for the feedback...going out to bring her in and place her in a carrier for the night. It will provide her warmth, hope its not gonna stress her out
