I'm glad that she is starting to improve. The more fluids she takes the better tonight.

I just went downstairs and she was standing normally and there was poop on the crate floor! No panting and she shies away from me normally now!!!!!! I can't tell if she's all better yet, as she's just in a crate, but she is standing, walking and showing interest in water . Woohoo! wee.gif

Sure is! Now I'm wondering what the probem is.....

It could be dehydration or a vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deiciency, or she may have cocci. I would either treat with vitamins and electrolytes for the vitamin deficiency, or I would start her on Corid. She also may have been injured in some way. Chickens can have all sorts of things that can affect them, but getting dehydrated perhaps from being kept from water by another chicken, can really cause problems fast. Here are some poultry vitamins with electrolytes and here is the Corid if you decide to use them:

These two are fed orally 1 to 3 ml daily by mouth

These 3 are put into the water

Ok.... That night there was a full, clean water bowl in the coop. Hope I don't have a bully.
When you say by mouth, do I just use a dropper? Thanks everyone for all your help.

Forgot to say, her poo is normal now, no blood or anything.
