Hello! .......and Help please! ....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi there,
I have 3 Hybrid chickens currently. I've had them for about 7 months now
Gertrude looks really poorly this morning, she didn't come out of the coop, she won't stand and her feet are limp. She is drooped to one side and flat on her belly.
Yesterday she was totally fine. She didn't lay an egg yesterday but that's the first day in months. The poo looks pretty normal. Her eyes are open and alert and she makes a bit of squeak occasionally.
Does anyone know what could be wrong with her please?
They were wormed around 3 months ago
Any advice would be really appreciated!
Thanks
Tam

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

Hope the ER folks would be able to diagnose your hen. Is it possible she is eggbound?
