What's wrong with my chicken?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
These past couple of weeks I've been noticing my chicken giving me bloody eggs(if any at all) and she's been having a lot of trouble pooing..I don't know what's up with her, but because of the blood the other girls started pecking at her vent area and making it bleed.. I baracaded her from the others so she can't get any more hurt.. She is in the coop with the chickens but in a smaller cage..I will provide pictures as reference.. Do you happen to know what going on with her, and how to fix it? Thank you in advanceūü§Ď

Welcome to Byc! 

 

I am so sorry you are having this issue. It is a good thing to have her separated. Is she showing any other signs of distress? not eating/drinking, weight loss, bloating, lethargic? I now I am not much for help with chicken diseases- If you post on the emergency thread you should get more help.

 

You may also be able to find some helpful info in the learning center.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Please don't have her in with the other birds, as long as they see red they will continue to go after her possibly resulting in cannibalism.  The others have given great links to your problem.  Hope you find the solution.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
