Nettle-hen is poorly. She was fine yesterday, but when we got back this afternoon she was sitting in her coop and very listless. We took her to the vets earlier this evening, and they've given her antibiotics and are keeping her in for observation.

ETA: The vet has just phoned to say she has perked up a bit overnight. Not out of the woods yet, but their hen specialist will be in soon and will see if anything more needs doing.

ETA2 She didn't make it. Very poor prognosis, so the vet advised us to have her put down. Didi hen can't work out where her fellow chicken has gone.

Poor Nettle! I hope she is restored to health.

I hope she has improved overnight and the antibiotics have done the trick. Fingers crossed.

I am very sorry for this news but read that you now have 2 new hens, so I am very glad that Didi hen has friends again.
