Customer Question

One of our three chickens has had a bald patch below her vent for about a month. Today I noticed that it has got substantially larger, mainly because I could see palish green discharge (diarrhoea) all over the exposed skin, which smells strongly. This only began today. She and the others have been together since August 2012 when we purchased them at point of lay. Their main feed is pellets for layers, and we add a little corn. She usually lays every day, but not for the past three. I would appreciate your advice about how to help her. Many thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
