My chicken, Daisy, is a five year old Old English game hen. She recently was having issues going to the bathroom and was suffering from seizures. The seizures were only occurring for a couple of days and stopped after I gave her some extra vitamin supplements and electrolytes. For about a week now, she has been very lethargic, only walking around a little bit, and very unbalanced and unstable when she does walk. She stumbles and trips very easily. She has even gotten stuck on her back a couple times. She sometimes strains to go to the bathroom, but she is definitely going enough and it all looks normal. She is eating fine, actually she's quite a pig! and she is drinking plenty of water. I have her inside the house because of the cold and her small size, and also so I can keep an eye on her.
Everything seemed to start after my new dog came after her and scared her pretty bad. I'm wondering if the stress might have just been too much for her. I read that chickens can suffer from a lot of health issues as a result of stress. I try to keep things very quiet and relaxed for her and I give her a lot of attention and cuddles, which she really loves.
I am still giving her the vitamins, but only every couple of days just to make sure she isn't being overdosed on them, but still getting enough. She is alert, eating, drinking, going to the bathroom fairly well, and otherwise pretty normal, she just doesn't want to move around, and when she does, she is very unbalanced.
Any help and advice is greatly appreciated! I love my girl very much and I want her to beat whatever this could be!
