    I have a 5 year old Welsummer who has been getting uglier every year. She's got a droopy 'chin' and real leathery skin around her eyes and her face. Any ideas why ?

    LOL!

    She is getting older, they are not getting any younger LOL! Nothing wrong with having an older hen. If you don't like "leathery" skin, just baby her by putting some baby oil on her wattles, comb and around her eyes and legs. She will feel like a million dollars.
