Velvet!? Help with sick hen!
This evening I noticed my 2 year old rhode island red stumbling around in the coop. When she walks it honestly looks like she is drunk. She tried to jump onto the roost and after a few minutes lost her balance and fell off. When she tried to preen herself she just tumbled backward.
We have her in a cage now with food and water and she is drinking and eating quite a lot. She doesn't seem to be in any pain, just very confused.
Do you know what this could be? I've had her and other chickens for 2 years now and never had any problems like this....
