Thread Starter 

I have a chicken about 1 year and 2 weeks under her egg production. Yesterday we found Super discouraged, lethargic and not really want to eat and the pale crest. They recommended him an aspirin and aroused much better but is still looks a little decayed
On the crest has white stockings popo spots and still get it a little liquid

It would be helpful if you can provide more information if possible. I'm not sure of giving aspirin to a chicken is the right thing to do especially if you're not really sure what is wrong.

 

Is she drinking at all? Perhaps give her some electrolytes and probiotics (you can get in packets from Tractor Supply) to start her off while you work out any other issues. Lethargy is a symptom of many different issues. Make any observations as you can; how is she acting overall? how do her feet look? how does her vent look? how does her poo look? and post them here. If you can post a picture it could be very helpful.

 

Hopefully someone else that may recognize the symptoms you described and will offer some better advice. Sorry I can't help much here other than offer some possible things to look for.

that is a pic of her poop. Is like very watery and green ( she eats a lot of lettuce and banana).
now the only symptom is the poop. And she eaten more then yesterday.
She is not laying eggs since tuesday and her vent looks normal to me ( soft pink.)
her feets looks normals and sometimes she sneeze and when I wake up I can hear her breathing super strong so I think she might be cold. Yesterday also hardly emitted sounds today yes

And finally her comb is a little bit pale but i think is normal, because she is not laying eggs

 

 

Thank you very much

I'm no vet nor am I familiar with many illnesses with chickens. So to start, based on what you have given, I would start researching on respiratory conditions in chickens on BYC and on the internet. Someone hopefully that recognizes these symptoms will give you better advise.

 

If you don't have vitamins (electrolytes) and probiotics available where you are then I would suggest putting Apple Cider Vinegar in her water and feed her yogurt (contains probiotics) if possible. It's a start but not the answer.

 

That's all I can offer. Hopefully you'll get more information soon.

yogurth ?? with flavor ?? without sugar ?? D:

post #7 of 7

plain, unflavored, no sweeteners added yogurt. I found that my duck likes it best slightly watered down with kale and peas mixed in. So you may mix it with their favorite treat if she doesn't want to eat it plain.

 

But most importantly look up these symptoms (especially the labored breathing) because that is the emergency issue here and may need antibiotics. I don't like using antibiotics but if my bird had these symptoms I'd be starting that immediately.

 

So do some research and see what type of antibiotics you may need to get.
