This morning I went out to feed and socialize with my flock when I noticed one laying in the corner of the outdoor run. She was partially laying on her side with her eyes closed. It looked as if she had passed away. I prepared to remove her from the area, and picked her up, when she opened her eyes. She is still alive, but not able to stand, keep her eyes open, and will not eat or drink. I opened her beak and it seemed as if it was stuck together. We have had this flock of seven for 2 years now and have not noticed any problems. This seems to have happened overnight. She is a Rhode Island Red, she has always been one of our smaller ones, but have never noticed anything alarming. I have many questions, but, the most important right now.... will I be able to save her? I have her isolated in a box in the back of my bathroom, trying to give her water.
Thank you in advance for any insight.
