Help! first time here. One of our girls is not feeling well

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Girls are 5-6 yrs old and one has suddenly stopped getting up on her roost.  She seems to not be able to walk well and is not steady on her feet.  She will drink and is also interested in eating.  Back feathers are fluffed.  I checked for a stuck egg and it does not feel that is the problem.  I brought her inside today and she appeared to have healthy poops.  Any suggestions or things I could look for.  Thank you so much.

Could it be that it's her time being older like that as I know chickens can live longer than that but not all chickens live at long

It may be age related  - like arthritis but, that wouldn't cause ruffled feathers.  Please post in full detail (photos would be great)  at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thrad.

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
