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.

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
