Ameraucauna problem,

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello I am new to BYC, hope you are all having a good day ūüźď but I have a problem, one of my ameraucauna pulleys is having a rough time, she is always tired she sways sometimes and lays down a lot, she does eat and drink her water and she likes to follow her friends to go forage or go up to the coop at night, but she is really skinny and has no fat on her, she also falls over a lot and is really quiet. If you could give an answer it would be deeply appreciated, also her droppings seem to be normal and not a different color,

How long has she been like this?  Any chance you would take her to a vet?    She sounds like she is seriously ill.  Birds try to hide that so predators won't pick them out as dinner.

 

You can post in full detail at " emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures." thread.    She sounds seriously compromised  maybe by worms, lice, mites,  or a combination of them. What do you feed your birds?  Has she been laying?  Is she in molt?    Surely other flock members have been observing her - do they bully here, or keep her from eating/drinking, her fill?

 

You are offline so we have NO WAY to reach you even if we knew of a cure.   I would guess, your next post will tell  us she has died.

I went outside to check this morning, and she's still there but barely hanging on, poor girl, anyway I isolated her in case the others are picking at her and from what I've observed, she is a not terminally ill, I'm pretty sure she has no lice, mites, or etc. but just in case, what do you use to treat external and internal parasites? She is not laying as of yet, and she eats Dumor grower crumble, could her feed be the problem? Also, if you could give some instructions about posting this to the illness pages, that would be a great help ‚ėļÔłŹ

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
