Ok have a new sick chicken, need some pro help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a buff orp thas 8-9 months old. Have 12 total. One of the hens for 2-3 days just seemed to kind of lay atound. She would get up and go out when i let them but after few minuges would be laying around. So yesterday i grabbed her and she has no meat on her, its gone just skin and bones. Im not exagerating when i say it. Gut cavity, breAst and all are just caved in feeling. I seperatef her to a pen of her own. Any one seen this before, or know what it is? Thanks

Is she eating?  She may have a high parasite load or she may have ingested something that has blocked her digestive tract.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.
