sick hen
« on: April 28, 2012, 05:04:21 pm »
Hi Guys

Oneof my Dumpies is sick. She's got up this morning looking all sorry for herself with a white squity back end and a dark droopy comb. She's out and about but quite lethargic and subdued. I've isolated her and she's taking water and a little corn but clearly not a happy chook!

Anything else I should be doing? She's about 10 months old and normally a good layer.

Linz :(

Have you wormed them with Flubenvet yet Linzntom? Are her poos normalish and is her crop full but not solid?
Is she egg bound or has she an abdominal infection, so is her backside soft and squishy or hard and swollen? I'm favouring egg bound at the moment as she is quite young and previously in good health I presume.
