Coccidiosis?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey all, a few hours ago I went to check on my chickens, and found our 13 week old California White was still on the roost with her eyes closed. Thinking she was just tired, I came back inside for a bit then went back out and she was still the same. I took her off the roost and set her down, she walks around a bit and seems to genuinely want to explore and be active, but something has her really fatigued and lethargic. she stands a lot with her eyes closed and her neck close to her body. She has no discharge, sneezing etc. and her vent looks clean. Her legs do have a few darkish bruise like spots. I brought her inside and right now she is eating some electrolyte water mixed with starter/grower crumbles, and she seems to be quite hungry. Does anyone know what might be wrong with her? should I go get some antibiotics or anything? right now I am waiting for her to  poop so I can see if it might be parasites or cocci. Here are a few pics of her: her crop seems ok as well.

 

the bruise spots on her shanks.

 

as you can see, she was falling asleep mid-eating. thank you for any replies, I hope our sweet Jessie is okay!
