Sick Hen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My hen was being attacked by 2 other hens and the rooster.  I was able to rescue her.  Brought her in and gave her a warm bath to remove poop from tail feathers.  She has had raspy labored breathing and isn't eating much at all.  She does drink a little.  When the other chickens come around she hides in her nest basket and breaths harder.  She does shake her head quite a bit.  She moves slowly.  My fear is they hurt her and will not be able to be saved.  Its been 2 days now and she hasn't laid any eggs either.

If you are afraid that they will hurt her separate her! Either in the coop or in your house, I would also make sure she stays warm.

She is separated in the barn. She eats, drinks water. She poops a little bit. No eggs for 5 days. Still clicks as she breathes. Started her on a wormer, electrolytes, pro biotic. Can someone tell me what to do please? I've never raised chickens.
