I think my hen is sick. In the last 1-2 days, she has become
in the last 1-2 days, she has become really lethargic and stopped drinking water... she will take a sip here and there, but the water dispenser is practically full. I noticed her food ran out maybe 4 days ago, and I've been trying to feed her scraps of food and I dumped the rest of what was left of her food for her. Her food hasn't come in the mail yet, but should be here today. However, I don't know if she will actually eat it. She hasn't been really eating much, but she tries. She doesn't roost anymore either. She perched on the ground last night for the first time. She normally has a floppy comb, but it looks extra floppy and a deeper red color. This morning is the first time I've noticed a frothy yellow poopy butt. … read more
