My Hen won´t stop drinking water

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,for the last couple of months my hen has been drinking so much that she pukes water:/

I have researched the illness {Coccidioses} and am starting to get worried...

she is a pet and i have had her for four years now,in the past(i travel alot!)(and bring my hens with me):) while i was in the shop i came back to her not breathing properly and not standing up just all wobbly.

also she was born late and mother had already left nest but i kept her warm then she grew up perfectly she has also  been chased by preditors a long time ago

but after all that she is the superhero hen,but usually she would heal fast .now she is eating normally has crumbly feet that she nibbles at .but the problem is she does not stop drinking and throws up alot but continues drinking until all of it is gone ...she is my lovely pet and i will do whatever it takes to stop her from getting hurt or sick

 

Thanks please help my chicken!!

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. I'd suggest posting on the ER forum - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures  for the best advice, sounds like it could be a crop issue, but I'll leave it to the experts over in ER.

 

Good luck

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

Do you have a vet you can take her to? Sounds like kidney involvement or diabetes ( if chickens can get it).
