I can't find out what is wrong with my chicken.
Every day its getting slower and slower and eating less and less.
Its lost its red colour to its comb and face and feels weak when I pick it up.
It walks slowly and spends most of the time on its own just standing in one spot.
I have lost 2 other chickens to this disease already.. all showing exactly the same symptoms. Last one died about one month ago.
But this chickens is a very special pet for me and a very rare breed in my country so will be almost impossible to replace.
Its a young pullet.
I have also lost 4 fancy pigeons to very a very similar thing.... lethargy and stopping eating and drinking and then dropping dead after a few days.
I have some coccidiosis medication that I just put in the chickens drinking water... but I don't think its coccidiosis because I treated the last chicken to die with this and it did not recover. But I may have left it too late that time.
This chickens poops look normal.. they are firm and light brown with some white. No blood. The other chickens that died only had white flat poops because they stopped eating so had nothing to digest. They had no blood either.
The thing thats confusing me is that there are no other symptoms like breathing difficulties, sneezing, mucus, etc.
I have spent hours on the net and cant find anything to match this disease.
Please Please Please.. any advice?
Could it be worms? Can a de worm it at the same time as the coccidiosis medication?
How do I know if its a crop problem like yeast etc?
I have no vets in my area that will treat birds... I have tried before. I really don't want this chicken to die.
