Anyone ever have a chicken that acts drunk? Staggering, walking in Circles. But eating and drinking:( Her facial feathers turned white over night!
She is putting one foot slowly in front of the other as she walks!! Please Help

I don't know but that sounds like an emergency.  You can try the Chicken Doctor at www.firststatevetsupply.com; he will give advice over the phone or via email.  He is not a vet, but a poultry expert.  Hard to get hold of on weekends, though.  I would recommend you take her to a vet who knows poultry, if you want to keep her. Sounds like maybe some kind of poison ? to me.

No way to know for sure, but vitamins are often recommended for the drunk chicken.

Good luck

I had a roo acting the same way a couple weeks ago. I was very concerned. He acted drunk, staggering, and if I would gently push him he would practically fall over. He was also very sleepy and had a lot of white crusty on his wattle. I was almost ready to put him down when he started to come around. The drunk sleepy roo got better in about a week. He's now crowing and hangin' with his hens again like nothing was wrong!
