My broody hen is not doing too well. She's been on the nest for a little over two weeks. Day 7 I candled the eggs and only one was viable. Brought in 6 more a couple of days later. About 7 days ago we had an accident and lost a few eggs. I don't know if the others survived the disruptionext, I think a couple of them have.
This morning she is behaving very differently. Normally when I go to give her food/water she fluffs herself up and clucks at me. Today she's not even reacting when I get close. Her eyes are closed. She only opens or clucks if I poke her. After work I pulled her out and tried to get her to drink some electrolytes but not having much luck.
This morning she had pooped bright green runny poo over her nest. I cleaned it up but this afternoon she was still doing green runny poos.
The flock was on antibiotics until Saturday for runny noses.
Saturday and Sunday were nearly 40c here so I gave them all some frozen mango Inc her. When I picked her up this afternoon she is very skinny. I'd say half her pre-broody weight.
Any advice? We're heading to the vets soon but I know people here can advise based on experience.
