Following a period of looking most unwell and going through 'mini moult', Winifred has made a full recovery and is even laying again. We were most concerned for her and had sought advice from Sarah of Newland Poultry
who made an instant and accurate diagnosis. Winifred had chosen the coldest and frostiest period to lose all her neck feathers. Her (floppy) comb had lost all is colour and she looked extremely sorry for herself. Although the smallest of our flock of five, she had always been by far the bossiest and the most prolific layer and so it was a shame to see her looking so poorly and vulnerable. I'm thrilled to say that she is now fully recovered and back to her normal bossy self! We are lucky to have a very happy flock and unlike others we've had, these five display very little spite. Hens are very unforgiving birds and are often super spiteful to each other so it's a treat to see such a contented flock. Hopefully, we're doing something right!
