When we got home yesterday:
1) 6 month old Blue Laced Red Wyandotte pullet laying in run, stretched out. I thought she was dead.
2) Originally when I picked her up, she was fairly unresponsive, checked her over, gave her some water with ACV in it, put her in a box with straw and quarantined her. Noticed she was trembling occasionally, and standing with her head down as if she were looking at her feet. Now she seems ALMOST normal, but is still trembling occasionally and occasionally laying with her neck outstretched, even if this lands her head in the feed dish. She eats a little, but not enough to fill her crop. Crop stays pretty empty. No sour smell, no discharge, eyes are clear and open most of the time. comb and wattles have not changed. There isn't any sneezing or coughing that I am aware of. She DOES seem a bit on the thin side.
3) Since yesterday.
4) No other birds displaying symptoms.
5) No other signs of trauma
6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. No idea.
7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Purina flock raiser and clean water
8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Light green color with white on top. No blood, perhaps a bit runny.
9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? ACV, Vitamins and probiotics(savachick), and Oxytetracycline.
10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? No vets, We'd like to treat it ourselves, just didn't want to throw a bunch of meds at her that weren't necessary.
11) I tried to take video of the trembling, but, of course, she doesn't do it when I have the camera out.
12) Bedding is pine straw and wheat straw. Housing is a typical, coop with plenty of ventilation.
She's on of our best pullets and we'd hate to lose her. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
