lethargic chicken

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi.  Found a 3 month old chicken(one of a group of 14--all 3 month olds) very lethargic this morning when I went to change water and refill feed. Brought her inside to warm her up and keep her out of the footpath of the rest of the youngsters.  She didn't seem to have and injuries or blockage but 2 hours later vomited yellow non stinky stuff and died.  Any thoughts?  should I be concerned about the rest of the flock?

Welcome to BYC.

What type of food/treats do you give?

Do they have access to grit?

Any chance she ate anything rotten or rancid?

Was the crop full, flat, hard, soft, etc?

Since she vomited "stinky stuff" it sounds possible that she may have had an impacted/sour crop, but I would think that is something that you would have noticed in the last couple of days.
