Sick, weak, chicken

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a hen that has became weak, sneezes, wattle fell to right side. For about a week, she won't eat and just sits. Her crop feels liquidy and warmly than usual. Her poop is liquidy yellow. Flock was just dusted few days ago using Diameticeous Earth for mites. Can someone please help me. My entire flock has stopped laying eggs

I really do not know what it is. Maybe worms or a fungus.

Welcome to Back Yard Chickens ! :cool:

Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.

This is cocadias! (I think) treat her with corid as soon as possible! Cocadias will kill her if not treated. Its an infection I'm the intestinal area if not in the intestine. Corid is available at your local farmers market. It will tell you how many teaspoons to put in your drinker. I'm somewhat new to this disease and how to treat it. But the workers at the market should know how.I had a case of cocadias resently. Best of luck -Deegan

It sounds like the one hen is deathly ill. I don't know why all would stop laying. It could be worms, possibly cocci, or both. But most likely they stopped laying just because of you grabbing them to dust. If they aaren't laying, it is a great time to proactively treat for worms and coccidiosis.

Get some Safeguard from the tractor store, as well as some Corid/amprolium powder if you can. You'll be able to find dosage info by searching this site.

As always, make sure they have fresh water, dry food, and a clean coop.
