I'm possibly 90% sure that your fowl friend needs draining and the draining would be a simple and not too long surgery. I'm not 100% sure what's in her abdomen that's making her bloat but the vet will diagnose. (P.S. Don't take my answers too seriously because I'm not a vet and 100% sure on what I say. These things are common but sometimes other viruses or bacteria cause the fluid buildup. When you visit the vet, tell him/her about your hen being sick and then feel better and just, tell him/her what happened.) Hopefully your fowl friend is alright!
Things To Do White Wait For Appointment:
1. Monitor for any symptoms
2. Check abnormal signs of poop, especially diarrhea
3. (You don't have to do this one, I don't think your hen is sick) Quarantine your hen from the flock
4. See if she is lethargy, and can't eat/drink/walkEdited by RedBreasted - 7/19/16 at 4:16pm
