I have a Austra White Hen who is about eight to ten months old. When I was cleaning their coop a few days ago I noticed that she had a severe case of pasty butt, however the poop was very yellow in color and she was not eating any of the treats I brought out to the coop with me. As a matter of fact she was acting very lethargic. I washed her off in a nice warm bath and discovered her bottom was a little swollen and raw looking. I put her in our guest bathroom with lots of warm towels, water, and an assortment of tasty foods to tempt her including boiled egg and yogurt. I could not get her to eat for the first two days and she was still acting very sleepy. All of her poop was yellow and very yoke like. I gave her a warm Epsom's bath every day for three days and finally on the third day she ate her food and had a bit more pep. She was also passing some normal poop along with her yoke poop. She is outside now free ranging with the other girls and seems to be doing better. I am planning on keeping a close eye on her as she feels very thin to me compared to he sisters and I want to make sure she is recovering. She did not lay any eggs during her stay in my bathroom. I feed my hens Lavena crumbles, treats such as tomato bits, cabbage, and yogurt, and they also free range in their 'yard'. Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
