    Thanks @Leahs Mom, I never conclusively determined what was wrong with her. But a concussion seems like the most likely scenario. I don’t think it was mareks or another disease because 1. No other hens have showed any symptoms at all and 2. She didn’t seem to grow worse over the last week she...

    Sadly I had to euthanize my hen earlier today, she had grown steadily worse over the past week. I suspect now that she had a severe concussion plus coccidiosis. Thanks so much for all of your support and advice.:)

    @pipdzipdnreadytogo she’s maybe doing a bit better this morning, I gave her two hot epsom salt baths yesterday. I’m beginning to think she might not be eggbound. I read they usually don’t make it past 48 hours if they don’t pass the egg, and it been more than 72.

    Just gave her about 5 tums crushed up in her water. Hopefully it helps.

    No word yet, I’ve got her quarantined and am going to try the hot water method tomorrow to make sure she’s not eggbound.

    Okay hopefully I can fit all the answers in.

No vaccinations. I treated the whole flock for coccidiosis when...

    Oddly disabled young hen

    I have a small hen who is about 1 year old, she’s been fine until today when I found her laying on her side not wanting to move, she also fell forward onto her chest when set back down. I checked for broken legs or bumble foot, but nothing. I also don’t think that it’s egg binding. Thank you if...
