Hello from Thibodaux, LA! Sick chicken question.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I'm fairly new to having chickens. So, I have an Amerucana chicken that's about a year old. She started acting strange 2 days ago. I thought she might have a stuck egg, but she laid today. She has separated herself. Sitting down randomly, not eating normally. No drainage from eyes, ears, or nose. Any suggestions?

Welcome to BYC, i would say that it was stuck but, she may just be worn out from getting the egg laid, give her some vitamins in water and some ACV, to give her a boost, just keep an eye on her.

Since she's lethargic, you might be best to separate her from the flock so she can rest without being picked on by the other birds (they'll single out the unhealthy ones and peck them). Hope she's back to normal soon.

 

Good luck to you!

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

Thanks Guys! Goldie seems to be feeling better, but now she won't get out of the box! Lol. Put food and water close to her. Gave her vitamins in the water. Haven't been to the store to get the ACV. Going tomorrow. Thanks for the help. I didn't see the sick chicken thread. I'm new to the site, so I'll have to continue to look!
