Help! Sick hen

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My hen came out of the coop today and just hid under a bush she's vey tierd and will find a corner or a bush and just stand there. She's normally very social and energetic. Her wings are droopy her head is twitching I haven't seen her poop and she's eating but not drinking. I'm planning on going to the vet tomorrow but if someone knows anything I can do today to help her it would be appreciated I could really use some help

There's some very experienced people on here if you need them. Two crows, dawn, and enola just to name a few. There's also a lot of knowledge on the grannies gone and done it thread. I'm sure a lot of others on here as well. Any of us will be glad to help if you need us. I'm new to this so I'm not much help but I can find someone that's very knowledgeable if you need. Good luck with her.
