chicken walking funny.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

Seems like my chickens are always sick these days. :/

Anyways my white plymouth rock hen has been walking really funny.

like her butt down almost touching the ground like she needs to lay a egg. Not interested in treats unless I come up to her then she has some.

so I picked her up and her bum felt like mush. If you have a chicken with sour crop thats what it feels like.

they haven't been wormed since oct/nov. Anyone know what this could be?

Thanks for your help I greatly appreciate it :D.

From your description is sounds like it could be internal laying like Egg Yolk Peritonitis.
