Light Brahma sick. weak, not eating

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

I have a Light Brahma named Leia and she has recently been losing weight, Does not want to eat and her comb and wattles have been a corral colour or her wattles have been almost white. We just let her outside cause she seems to have more energy when she his outside. If you could give me some food tips that would be great. I can get a picture soon.

She is a little over a year. I don't think she has been wormed. I haven't been studying her poop but I will when I go and check on her. She does a a lot of poop on her butt though and she smells

Her butt

 

Does it sound serious?

Can you get to a farm supply store and get some Corid and Safeguard?

The Corid would be for coccidiosis. The Safeguard would treat worms.

Ok. I will try both of them.

 

Does it sound serious to you?

Any time a chicken is losing weight, doesn't want to eat and probably is not drinking, the situation is definitely serious.

The Corid will be found in the cattle medicine section of the store.

The Safeguard will be in the sheep/goat section of the store.

Ask the employees to help you find them. DO NOT let them tell you that you can't give these medicines to chickens.

Can you get your hands on this stuff tonight? I hope so.....
