Possible signs of illness
« on: September 03, 2011, 20:28 »
Evening all

I'm am wanting some advice as think I may have a problem with my hens.  I cant put my finger on it but I just feel like something is wrong.

My Speckledy hen has been broody for the majority of the summer and its been very difficult to break.  Shes been fine for the last few weeks and seems happy and alert but I can not remember the last time she laid an egg.  I have noticed a change in her appearance in that she looks slightly greasy and dull rather than fluffy.  Secondly her comb has flopped over and I'm not sure if this is normal.  Her comb has grown so I thought that maybe why but it seams pale.

I did have to take her out of the run a couple of days ago because the other hens were bullying her quite bad but it was just that one day.

Yesterday I had a really big egg with no shell and this morning I had 3 really tiny eggs.

Does anyone else think there's a problem or am I worrying over nothing?

Thanks
Beth
