(UPDATED) Hi all 1st post hope someone can help out.. i am in sydney australia. Yesterday about 3pm i noticed 1 of my 4 chickens would not stand when i threw out some scraps. I walked over and she would not stand up. I though a cat had got her but after checking her there are no marks or cuts She can flap her wings when i pick her up. After cooling her with a spray bottle as it was a medium hot day for autumn i put her in a dog cage and watched her. Feeding her water by hand around 9pm she could hold her head up so i left her for the night. This morning she still has not moved (Bar her wings) and would not eat seed (unless i feed her individual sunflower seeds). she loved some tuna i gave her and also she would drink from bowl when i put near her mouth. She looks like she is gasping for air but she has no difficulty with her breathing. It's like she has a really dry mouth. She tried to stand a few times this afternoon and got up about and inch or so but then dropped back down. She claws seem strong when she grasps my finger and there is not pain or squalking.. any ideas...... Cheers 1) What type of bird , age and weight. my chicken is a brown one with red comb 2) What is the behavior, exactly. She cannot stand but does try too. She looks like she is gasping for air but is breathing ok - looks like a dry mouth. She is fully alert- her eyes are response to light and movement and she can now lift her head. 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. No sign of injury or trauma 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. 32 degree cel temperature yesterday but did have access to water 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Single sunflower seeds and tuna 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Found some sort of egg / poop granular like rocky no sign of blood. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Hand feeding and islation 8 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Treat myself 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. No Wounds 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use Shares 1 meter by 4 meter hutch with 3 other chickens for sleeping also have shared laying hutch.
