lethargic bird

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I have 5 backyard layers. 1 of them has been lethargic for 4 days now. green poo. comb and beard are droopy. I will not put a lot of money into her at vet. they do have an antibiotic to add to water at farm supply store. should I buy that and quarantine her.  I don't want her to suffer either. will this illness pass or will she? the other 4 birds are fine. I checked vent yesterday, there doesn't appear to be an obstruction.

I am a Christian also. thanks for your help. I will just keep an eye on her. she gets in roost at night and moves about to sleep in different spots during day. she put up a fight when I try to catch her to check on her. but she is warm to the touch, like running a fever.


take care and blessings to you

They tend to run 104 normally, and could she possible need to be dewormed i think thats another thing that could cause it let me see if i can get the a person on here that knows alot about chickens for you.
