Need help ASAP! 2nd chicken sick now - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 

Just wanted to close the loop on this one- I took my Henny Penny to the vet last Friday.  She did indeed have bumblefoot and unfortunately it involved both feet.  Dr. R decided though that she definitely had something internal going on as well- HP was very docile and quiet.  We decided to euthanize Henny and perform a necropsy for the sake of the flock- Good news for the flock is the HP was suffering from egg yolk peritonitis and there was no evidence of any infectious process occurring.  So on the heels of this our coop received a serious disinfecting this weekend and all feet were checked.  Thank you again for your help!!

Sorry for your loss. It can help others when you find out what illnesses your chicken had, and then post it here like you did.
