    One of my RIR hens is very wobbly this morning. She went straight to the water and drank but I have not seen her eat. She is about 28-30 weeks old. I lost a hen a few weeks ago to what I thought was heat stroke but now I am not so sure. She is walking but tips to one side and if I try to catch her she ends up falling over. Did not notice anything wrong last night when I locked up... Everyone else is acting fine

    Have you wormed your birds?
    Does she have anything in her Crop?
    How hot has it been there?

    I have a RIR that is doing the same thing. I have separated her into the nursery and she seems to be getting slowly better. 5 days now. She could hardly stand up. She would wobble and then sit down. The other chickens took to attacking her so I separated her. What is wrong?
