Poorly Hen
« on: October 09, 2017, 10:17:20 am »
Hello all,

I have a very poorly looking hen!  She is not wanting to come out of the coop and has very runny poo.  I did move her out and she was looked as is she was struggling to walk and eventually just propped herself against the feeder.  One of her pupils is also very small.
I have done an internal examination and she doesn't seem to be egg bound.

Any ideas?

Breathing OK?  Is she drinking?

To be honest when as bad as this sounds they usually keel over pretty soon after you find them.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
