Runny poo, fluffed & not feeling well

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, my buff orpington named Honkers is not feeling well. She started symptoms free ranging Monday night. Her bottom is raw, and feces are hanging off of the feathers that are still there. I put her in the barn to be alone, and when I picked her up a whole bunch of water/discharge/clear fluid gushed out of her mouth, like barf sort of. I feel so bad for her. She sleeps a lot and is all ruffled up. Her poop is green and super watery/runny. She's just not herself. I was going to giver her a nice warm soak tonight, but wanted to get opinions on what I should do first. She drank maybe two and a half eye droppers full of water. I wanted to keep fluids in her since she's losing quite a bit. Thanks for all of your help. I hope she will be okay, she's a family pet. Thanks.

How old is she? What type of feed is she eating? Can you get some poultry vitamins and electrolytes that contain probiotics? Give her some egg chopped up, and put some electrolyte water in a small amount of her feed to make it soupy. Has she been wormed? Is there a local vet that can check her a few of her fresh droppings for worms and coccidia? Any other symptoms that you can describe? It might help to bring her inside to get warm where you can watch her closely for a day or two>

I would go ahead and treat for coccidiosis. Corid in the water. And make sure that's her only source of water.

She will be four later this year. She has been eating 16% All flock pellets and has been free ranging the last few days. I do have water soluble electrolytes I should give her. She was wormed a while ago, but no we don't have a vet around. She was much better today than yesterday and the day before, but still not 100%.
