My Sussex chicken breathes weird. Cloudy white liquid coming out from her mouth.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

this last month i lost around 4 chickens due to diseases and I wasnt able to save any of them but this one i really want to save. She is one of my first chickens, she is 8 months old now and I struggled to raise her up to 8 months old, I refuse to let her die.

She seems to breath weird, not active but not lethargic. Every 10 seconds or so she gasps for air, stretching her neck forward. I thought maybe she had a problem with her crop(which i checked but it seems normal to me). However, I did massage her crop hoping she would feel a little bit better and all of a sudden a white liquid(cloudy) started dripping from her mouth. I kept massaging trying to release as much as i could. 

Please any help would be appreciated. Im too exhausted from losing my chickens and I'll probably cry if this one dies.

@targaryen9 , welcome to BYC! Canyou take her to a vet?

Have you ever de-wormed you flock?

 

Is she eating and drinking? 

 

Is she losing weight?

 

Can you post a picture of her poop?

She is drinking but not eating. Believe it or not we dont have vets for poultry in my country. The only thing that i can do is to guess whats wrong with them and go to the pharmacy and buy the appropriate one. So you guys are my vets.
I'll try to post a pic of her poop. I never de wormed my chickens(this is the first case of this disease I've had so far and hopefully the last). And yes i think she did lose some weight.
