Not sure what I'm doing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, my name is Robin and I live in Davie Fl.I have one bantam hen and one silky rooster. I work at my friends farm taking care of over 30 chickens.I brought an older hen home 2 weeks ago that wasn't looking well. Her tail was down and she wasn't very interested in food or walking. She started ding much better for about 4 days,tail up and following me around. Now she is worse than before. She is eating but not walking at all and tipping g sideways. Her breast is all bone but her stomach and between her legs are heavy.she weighs 5.5lbs.

Hi Robin and welcome to BYC. You may wish to post your question, including as much detail as possible in the ER forum - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures.

 

Good luck

Welcome to BYC :frow It sounds from your description that the hen is either laying internally or egg bound. Did you get any eggs from her so far?

 

Here are some threads etc on the topics:

Good luck with her and please keep us posted!
