Is this the one with mites and lice? Did you go get the proper dust from the feed store?

Hello! I think Ive seen this before but I forgot the treatment and what it is. My Mille Fleur, (not even a year) has bumps all over her comb, face and waddle, it has a bit on blood near the top. Im quite worried that my handicapped chicken, chicks, mother and the other chicken could get it. Photos below.

She hasn't laid an egg yet - but she's due anytime. I just got the first egg from the flock today

I checked her for mites and lice. She looks good in that respect. I changed out the pine shavings with paper towel. I did notice there was one brown solid poop in there mixed in with green. I'll post when she goes again

She did eat applesauce mixed with chicken broth and a drop of vet rx that I had. I basically just kept dipping her beak in it. She perked up a tiny bit during that - but only for a minute. i checked for bumble foot - that was fine. Her vent looked fine (?!? I don't know what I was looking for) she didn't show any outward signs of respiratory distress, eyes seemed alert. But she can't stand. She could move her legs when I was examining her - but not support weight. The legs looked in good condition though. Next steps?

I need help :/ when I went out this morning my roos comb (usually red) had turned yellow. it was not like this the day. At night it has been getting around -5 degrees. But he is in a coup. Could it be frostbite? The pics I looked up where black not yellow..

Looks like dry fowl pox, but do check the inside of his mouth for yellow pus (wet pox). It's a virus, so there is no "treatment".

What type of food/treats do you feed?

How old is she?

Any swelling of the abdomen?

 

As suggested earlier a photo of the droppings on paper towels, hard surface,etc. will be helpful.

 

There can be many reasons why she has lost the use of her legs - injury, vitamin/nutritional deficiency, diseases like Marek's and  reproductive/laying disorders are just a few.

Sometimes it's hard to determine the cause, so I'm glad you are able to get to a vet later in the week.

 

In the meantime, try to keep her hydrated, add some poultry vitamins to her water.  Offer some wet feed - chick starter would be good since she hasn't started laying yet, you can also give egg, tuna, mackerel or meat.

 

Keep us posted on her progress.
