I had one Austrolorpe (sp?) that looked fine except she just stood around. No one picked on her, nor she look or sound sick. I removed her from the run/coop and she got worse it was almost as if she couldn't eat or swallow right. I ended up putting her down because for 2 days she just laid there with her legs out to the side. She was about 16 weeks old. Now I have a 3 year old RIR acting "not right" she's not moving as fast and she just laid down by the cage I had the other one isolated in. I'm going to isolate her too. Her comb is also very small. No one has any symptoms except maybe not eating as well, and some lethargy, and then after isolation leg paralysis (in the young one). Can anyone help me with a game plan? I love my Chicky Girls and its just sad. :( Thanks.
