    Trouble laying

    I have a 3-2-year-old barred rock who seems to be having a bit of an egg problem. leading up to this, she's been laying fine so I'm thinking she tried to lay but she laid a soft-shelled egg and it broke. Just today, when I let her out I noticed when she went to use the bathroom that she had what...

    VERY SICK BIRD

    I've considered it, at this point I think she's suffering, so I am considering putting her to sleep, she stopped laying when she got sick, and I was constantly worried about a reproductive issue. Ultimately, I'm going to speak with my vet and see about putting her to sleep.

    VERY SICK BIRD

    Oh yeah, the saliva is a constant thing, it was one of the first things I noticed when she started getting sick. Nothing in her mouth or throat, though

    No, not every time. And I only really heard it after she'd swallow watermelon

    It depends, if it gets to a point where she won't eat at all then maybe, but for the moment she still eating relatively well

    !!URGENT!! PLEASE HELP!!

    I'll see if I have any on hand and go from there, thanks for the tip. I got her to eat lots of soaked feed pretty well, she let me clean her beak for her as well, but she refused to eat after I brought her inside, so I brought her back out. it seemed to stress her out rather than help her...

    !!URGENT!! PLEASE HELP!!

    I gave her safeguard liquid goat dewormer, her crop is completely empty, I could barely feel it, a little squishy but no odor. I've been searching for a vet in my area who would look at her, and the only one who might is extremely inhumane (I've taken my cat and goose there and I was extremely...

    CRD or something else at play?

    **not an emergency** On September 18th, one of my three-year-old hens unexpectedly passed away. She had absolutely no symptoms, just woke up to let them out, and found her dead. I ruled her death out to be asphyxiation. She was discolored (purple/blue) and had fluid seeping from her mouth. I've...

    She just passed, she was comfortable but it was very traumatic. She was held and talked to in her last moments

    !!EMERGENCY!! DYING BIRD!!

    I don't think I could get her to take it. She's slowing down, her breathing has gotten to be a slower, click like thing. Like she flinches halfway between each breath

    !!EMERGENCY!! DYING BIRD!!

    Her little legs and feet are warm but curled underneath her, her body feels hard. I think she dying, I don't think there's anything I can do. Any idea if this could be spread to my other girls...?

    !!EMERGENCY!! DYING BIRD!!

    She is. She's one of my heavier birds but she does seem to have lost some weight, I'd say 5-6 pounds maybe ? Possibly less, not 100% on that. Her pupils are huge, she has labored breathing, and everytime she wakes up/ becomes aware again, she tries to get to the back of the cage, but it doesn't...
