    My 11 month old black sex link hen was laying every day. Found her one morning unable to hold up head or walk. I brought her in and fed her vitimens, yogurt and electrolyte water and she recovered in a week. She is now active, eats well but she does not lay any more and face, comb and wattles have tu;rned white. Comb looks dried out and droops. What is wrong, what to do?

    White skin is normally a sign of anemia or poor circulation. If she is anemic it could be from worms. When was she last wormed? Notice any lice or mites in her feathers near the skin?
